Description

Young Gifted & Black began almost three decades ago in 3rd Ward—Houston, TX. From the imaginations of some extraordinary women would come an effort that left an extraordinary impact on innumerable young lives. These women gathered renowned Houston educators, artists, and dance instructors to form a coalition of the willing to launch an effort that taught children to read and write their own stories and to embrace their beautiful blackness with the understanding that love for self and community is non-negotiable. Shy children were emboldened to take stages from the University of Houston to the Miller Outdoor Theater and recite poetry, and dance, and speak life into perpetuity.
