Grandmothers Who Help Welcomes You

Teaching Black History in the 21st century

The very moment a child is exposed to their own history, a world of possibilities presents itself. It is essentially, the knowledge of one’s past that paves the way for one’s future. While there’s no doubt that the historical footprint of African Americans within these United States has been marred with pain, degradation and injustice. Notably however, there is also a footprint overflowing with accomplishment, triumph, strength, and value, reaching back from before Jamestown 1619 through to this present day.

Through our black history presentations, educational programs and lectures, Grandmothers Who Help is determined to replace the barrage of negative images pressed upon black youth in almost every aspect of today’s society, and the lack of inclusion within US History lessons taught throughout schools across this nation.  We work with teachers, librarians, churches and community organizations to create an experience that for one child builds pride and for another creates bridges of understanding.

We are determined not only to use black history as lessons of the past, but also as a resource to connect to the future.   Our presentations bring full exposure to current and historical figures who make up a long lineage of scientist, educators, politicians, civil rights leaders, musicians, inventors, doctors, domestic workers, and entrepreneurs. Those whose contributions are not only woven within the fabric of these United States, but also played one of the most important roles in helping the United Stated of America become the economic powerhouse it is today.

Knowledge is power, and by opening up [their own] history to a black child, we are building in them self-awareness, pride and the permission to dream…to dream big!
