Our students meet monthly for a year and our curriculum is
divided into three parts. During the first part, January through May,
students learn about African American and Jewish history, religion and culture
as well as the bigger issues of institutional racism, power, privilege and
The second part is a life-changing, summer journey which
deepens their understanding of our country’s history and of the inequalities in
our society. They travel to places in the U.S.
significant to civil rights and social justice: NYC, Washington,
D.C., Atlanta; cities in Alabama and Mississippi, Little Rock, and Memphis.
Students meet with political leaders, social activists, journalists, authors
and historians, and other key figures who are/have been at the center of social
justice movements; and visit historical places, museums, and cultural venues
that are dedicated to promoting cultural awareness and social justice.
In the third part, September through December, students learn
the core skills necessary to become leaders and activists who will bring about
social change. They learn community organizing, leadership, public
speaking, fundraising and media skills; and how to facilitate discussions on
tough social issues. Students learn to question, identify and speak up
when they see or hear bias, racism and discrimination. Parents of
our students also meet every six weeks to learn and participate in many of the
same lectures and activities as their children. Parents also become informed activists in their own circles of influence as well as allies to their children.
