The Junior Scholars Program is historical literacy, art and inquiry-based program that invites 125 youth, ages 11 to 18, to explore Black history through the lens of the Schomburg’s vast collections, exhibitions, and educational resources.   The Junior Scholars Program provides tuition-free classes, including learning experiences that take place outside of traditional classrooms, in black history and culture not often taught in our schools. Through these learning experiences, the Junior Scholars empower themselves with knowledge of black history, and create fresh images to deconstruct negative stereotypes through art and media projects. They learn to define themselves, and participate in forums about local and national issues affecting youth. They connect current events in American society with global issues impacting the African diaspora. They advocate on behalf of all youth through social activism projects. In short, they research, discuss, and write about what matters to them. They gain confidence and leadership skills by participating in college-style lectures, traveling to local museums and cultural institutions, and producing art and media that impact our community. They are the next generation of scholars, artists, activists and social entrepreneurs. They are independent thinkers. They are explorers. They are storytellers. They are team players. They are change-makers.   The program runs for ten months on Saturdays, from October through May, and culminates with an annual Youth Summit presentation to the public.
