Show-Me-Series History Program

At the end of our summer development program, we emphasize the value of understanding and learning history. We are committed to exposing our youth to as much history as we possibly can. In the words of Marcus Garvey, "We have a beautiful history, and we shall create another in the future that will astonish the world." It's an amazing opportunity to be able to visit these important historical sites and learn to appreciate what has been and plant the seeds for our youth to imagine - what can be!

This program brings children and their families to cities around the country to learn the history of some of the United States most significant cities. For example, in 2015 we traveled to Detroit. As a result of the benevolence of the Brenda Williams Charitable Trust Fund and others, we were able to take 21 youths and parents on a historical trip to study the rise and fall of Detroit.

Other Show-Me-Series History Programming have included the following cities:

  • Chicago, IL
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Washington, DC
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Tuskeegee, AL
