Baltimore Magazine stopped by the school to learn about our students’ recent trip to Ghana and our upcoming Africa Now Festival from March 20-25:
“For the past year, high school senior Greg Parker has been studying African history in a textbook. But in January he got to step foot inside a nearly 600-year-old slave castle on the coast of southern Ghana and feel the history first hand. Parker was one of 16 lucky students at Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) that took the cross-continental journey as part of the school’s Africa Now: Global Perspective curriculum.
‘We want to build real-world experiences,’ says BSA arts manager Laura Cunningham. ‘And we knew that the group of students we chose would be able to come back and share their experiences in creative ways.’ ”
They also recorded short interviews with five students. You can read the story and watch the clips here.
