summer program for academically oriented high school students interested in black studies
Do you know a bright and motivated high school student who is interested in issues of race and ethnicity? If you do, please direct them to the Telluride Assocation website. Every year, the Telluride Association sponsors summer seminars for dedicated students on a range of topics. This coming summer, I will co-teach, with Maria Hamilton Abegunde, a seminar for high school sophomores called “The Black Struggle for Freedom: An Interdisciplinary Perspective.” It will be taught at the Indiana University campus. The cost of the seminar, including housing and meals, is fully covered by donors and the Association. It is the policy of the association that cost will not be a barrier for entry.
If you know a student who might be a good match, please check out the application web site. The Telluride Association also hosts programs on other topics for sophomores and juniors – so check it out!
