For most Americans, the images of Africans and historical African-American figures has been negative. Images of men and women in some form of bondage is what typically comes to mind first.
In modern times, the narrative is not much different. Whether it’s incarceration, substance addiction, extreme poverty or distress, people of color still fight the negative, inaccurate and one-sided depictions of people who look like them.
Children are particularly susceptible to the influences of images. The goal of this program is to paint a more accurate picture of the history of those who are descendants of the African diaspora and other indigenous populations around the world.
