Most recently, the SFHRC developed workshops and curriculum that examine current and past artists and activists, comparing Langston Hughes to Kendrick Lamar and Dr. King to Chance the Rapper. The curriculum has been shared at dozens of workshops and conferences across the nation and resonates with educators, youth and community from diverse backgrounds. The curriculum serves as a tool for teaching social justice, equity, social studies and history. The trainings serve as tools and resources to improve educational outcomes and learning for all youth, but especially for youth of color.
The MBSK Equity Workshops will host a series of activities:
1. Beyond the Dream – Curriculum and workshop on using the tools2.
