Join us for the Black History Summer Camp, an online experience for youth between the ages of 12 years old and 17 years old. This unique educational opportunity will be a 4-day opportunity for young people to reshape their self-image and gain confidence through learning history.

** This one week’s FULLY VIRTUAL experience takes place on ZOOM Monday – Thursday @ 11 am CDT.

** The RECOMMENDED age is between 12-17 years old, but ultimately this will be at the discretion of the parent registering their child (in case you have a child older or younger you want to include)

We will connect the past to the present using music, pop culture images, historical images, and video. We plan to use gamification to test their ability to retain information and identify symbols. Finally, we will encourage them to get to know one another to help them bond and understand the importance of community, group learning, and teamwork.

“14 states imposed restrictions on how history is taught in the classroom—removing students’ access to topics that make adults uncomfortable or are contrary to their dogma.” – Lauren Camera for U.S. News and World Report.

“FutureEd has identified 47 bills introduced or prefiled this year in 23 state legislatures that limit teaching on these topics.” (Racial History) – the74million.org.

Black Americans can no longer depend on the K-12 public school system to teach our children real history, especially regarding African Americans. So we want to do our part, stepping outside the traditional education system to provide a rich learning opportunity.

WHAT WE WILL DISCUSS

We will discuss and share information about:
Early African Civilizations
The Original People
Black Inventions/Creations/Influence
Melanin
And so much more
