Lesson on Slavery

The Sankofa Saturday School is geared towards Black children. It's still a new thing, so few kids attend, and it takes place in the summertime. The kids learn about African dance, Black history, slavery, agriculture, and more. On this particular day, I was intrigued by the seriousness of the kids while they learned about slavery. It was a hot day, and most kids would have been extremely distracted by the heat, bugs, and so on. But these kids were attentive, listening to every word and then asking and answering questions about their lesson. I recorded some audio, so perhaps some reactions and part of the lesson plan and even the dance they learned would make for an interesting slideshow.
