Students participate in exhibition to learn unity, responsibility and self-determination

The Paul Robeson Malcom X Academy’s Student Leadership Team, involving 33 6-8 grade students, partnered with the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History to learn and be involved in the Anatomy of an Activist Exhibition event.  This three-part series helps and teaches youth what makes an activist and emphasizes equity verses equality.  The students were challenged to practice Kujichagulia (Self-determination), Umoja (Unity), Ujima (Collective work and responsibility) and Ujamaa (Cooperative Economic).

“The exhibition was a great way to share skills of self-determination for the community through collective works and economic growth for all, keeping in mind the equity needed for equality amongst citizens” says Nicole Devezin, teacher at Paul Robeson Malcolm X.
