This year our program will focus on the below Latina and African-American history makers:

  • Maya Angelou
  • Ruby Dee
  • Angela Davis
  • Shirley Chisolm
  • Julia De Burgos
  • Celia Cruz
  • Ellen Ochoa
  • Sonia Sotomayor

The program will run from March – June on the third Saturday of each month. The workshops will take place in Brooklyn, NY and Washington, D.C. simultaneously. The format of the programs will be as follows:

  • A teaching artist will do engaging activities with the teens to teach them about the historical figures.
  • A speaker who is knowledgeable about the person’s achievements will come in to speak to the teens, as well.
  • Sundays will be reserved for field trips to locations that our historical figure made famous or was part of their journey to becoming the great woman we know her as today.
