* scheduled workshops in black
Grades: 6 - 8
Participants experience history as runaway slaves and abolitionists. They use codes hidden in traditional black songs, plot escape routes and speak out, putting themselves in the shoes of those brave and ingenious souls who risked their lives on the Underground Railroad.
For this workshop our chef prepares a special "holiday on the plantation" menu.
At the conclusion of the abolitionist meeting, students will be asked to apply lessons learned during their interactive sessions to current issues of injustice and slavery in the world of today.
Kim & Reggie, nationally known musicians, historians and activists, have been featured at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Smithsonian. They present more than 250 concerts and workshops annually.
I had a great time and I learned a lot about music, group work and writing. I feel more strongly about unjust activity.
The mentors were great!
