As part of their work with AFRO Charities, students were able to explore the layout of a physical, print newspaper- some of them for the first time!

Through a partnership with AFRO Charities and Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center (LTYC), 15 students from the Coppin Academy were given the opportunity to explore the history of Black Baltimore and its impact on art.

Teaching artist Unique Robinson, of LTYC, worked with 15 students from the Academy over the course of the past spring semester. Together, they used the AFRO Archives to do research and then created new works in a variety of mediums based on what they learned through their research. The program ended with the Student Fellowship Showcase, where the student fellows got to present their works.
