We Are Freedom School!

The Family Tree has approximately 40 elementary scholars in our 2014  Freedom School summer camp. Freedom School scholars meet in the morning at 8:00am. They enjoy breakfast, Harambee, literacy curriculum, lunch and an enrichment activity or field trip, daily.  A wide variety of Charlotte community leaders have served as Freedom School volunteers so far: Bob Morgan, Sandra Caldwell-Williams, Ray & Anne Fields, Ian Miller, Passport camp and Myers Park Baptist youth- just to name a few. Freedom School is working to improve reading comprehension. If you don’t know how to read or write for yourself, then someone else will write your history for you. We think that our young people have big imaginations and powerful stories. We want them to tell their stories for themselves in ways that highlight their talents and accentuate their gifts. That is why we join in saying, “We Are Freedom School!”
