Courage: The Black New York Struggle for Quality Education

Share

October 2 through December 31, 2009

Program Locations:

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

This exhibition explores the visions and aspirations of courageous leaders and parents who have been seeking to educate black children. It looks at the obstacles black children have faced and the comparative nature of the learning environments and belated examples of educational success that have been established in New York City's public school system. It also asks the enduring question of what kinds of educational policies, environments, and instructional programs black New Yorkers need in order to reach their fullest potential. Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed Sunday.
