Chris Brown Visits Charter School In Harlem
Chris Brown’s trying to shed the bad boy image he got from physically assaulting Rihanna last year, volunteering to read to kids at Harlem Charter School yesterday.
Brown was recently approached by the principal of Sisulu-Walker Charter School in New York City, who asked if he would volunteer at their annual “Family Read Night”. Brown accepted and attended the event that encourages young people to love reading literature.
Parents at the school were apparently happy he attended, with one mother telling the New York Daily News “He can come even though he was arrested. He’s coming to read to the children. He apologized on TV. Sometimes in real life we make mistakes.”
Principal Dawn Cejas adds “I extended an invitation to all celebrities and politicians, and we had an acceptance by him.”
Chris’ camp hasn’t spoken on the student sit-down, but this is the second charitable appearance he’s made in New York since the beginning of the year. Last month he walked in Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief Runway show, benefiting the effort to rebuild Haiti after a devastating earthquake.
