Show-Me-Series Program

 

This program brings children and their families to cities around the country to learn the history of some of the US's most significant cities. For example, in 2015 we traveled to Detroit. Due to 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.

In Detroit, our first stop was the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the largest African American history museum in the nation. From there we headed to the GM RENCEN, where the students' imaginations soared as they got into some of the sportiest cars on the market today. The next day we toured the Motown Historical Museum. After leaving that museum, we decided to go to Belle Isle Park and have a picnic. The students visited the Nature Zoo, the Aquarium, and the River Walk. As with all of our trips, we ended with a test of what the students learned, with prizes for 1st and 2nd place for each age group (6th to 8th grades and 9th to 10th grades).
