Building The Future We Want

All around us we hear the cries for a change to the current systems we live under. We know what we DO NOT WANT, but do we ever stop to think about what we do want and how we would go about creating this vision. This series of classes is designed to provide the youth with an opportunity to think critically through ideas such as: What does freedom mean to you? What is freedom? Is freedom personal or collective? Can it be both? As people of color we have been involved in a long process of freeing ourselves from systemic oppression, but how often do we stop to fully think about what we would create as an alternative? What would be our ideals and goals? Does democracy work? What kinds of economic organization would be ideal? This class aims to provide We will analyze ancient African civilizations and read from the book “Pedagogy of the Oppressed.” Through reading, writing, discussing and analyzing the students will begin to create the blueprint for the future they want. Materials: Book “Pedagogy of the Oppressed”.
