Russell Simmons: We need art education in schools

Updated

Def Jam co-founder and the RUSH Philanthropic Arts Foundation’s Russell Simmons talks with Morning Joe’s Drew Katchen about the 12th annual Art for Life benefit, practicing yoga and the legalizing of same-sex marriage in New York.

Quick bit of editorial housekeeping: I asked Russell his thoughts on the legalizing of gay marriage in New York, but my wording was a bit off. I asked him his thoughts on “Monday’s marriage ruling.” Obviously, the ruling legalizing gay marriage happened in June, and same-sex unions began this Sunday past and not Monday. Didn’t have enough coffee this morning.
