On April 10, 2013, the photography of BCAL & Robeson youth was featured in an Alcohol Awareness Project curated by The Partnership for a Healthier NYC. The BCCP participated in the project in collaboration with The Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation. The photography exhibit was on display at Macauly Honors College.
April is Alcohol Awareness Month. Youth at Paul Robeson High School did a four block environemental scan starting Dean and Albany Ave to Eastern Parkway and Albany Ave. Students documented how many alcohol advertisments were placed within a four block radius of the Paul Robeson High School. With the exception of one block (Lincoln Place and Albany Ave) which has storefront churches.
This project is in collaboration with the BCCP and The Partnership for a Healthier Brooklyn at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration
The Paul Robeson Program loves photography and it shows!!!
The youth of Paul Robeson High School learned about Digital Diaspora Family Reunion and brought in their pictures to share their cherished family memories. Here’s a preview:
Three students from Paul Robeson HS attended the 2013 YouthBridge Youth Summit. Amara Camara, Nathanael Joseph, and Erica Allen participated in various workshops discussing a wide range of issues from cyber bullying to youth entrepreneurship, racism to access to healthy foods, and poverty to better education. The goal was for students to decide on one issue and to create a project that addresses such issue. My students decided to tackle racism in their community.
