Children’s Programs

An important aspect of the National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture is its mission to educate and inspire the future. The National Center provides a variety of programs and events for children to partake in, ranging from youth centered discussions, to book readings and signings, to art workshops, all from inspiring area artists, writers, and teachers. Schools and other youth organizations are encouraged to contact the National Center to request a program or to organize an event.

This will be an entertaining and educational presentation directed to children from 4 to 12 years old. This year’s presenters are experienced professional writers and story-tellers with over 14 books in print and over 30 years of story-telling experience.
