Description

About the event

Family Learning Villages (FLVs), organized by Village of Wisdom, are interactive workshops for parents of Black children led by parents of Black children. We aim to help families explore the unique joys and challenges of raising Black children in today's society, where our children can celebrate #blackgirlmagic and #blackgenius, but we still need to remind the world that #blacklivesmatter. The Family Learning Village curriculum is based in lived experience and academic research, and FLV exercises are designed to empower families, create community among participants, and help parents support their children's self-image and resilience. Family Learning Villages offer caregivers a space to discuss, learn, and practice, along with the concrete support of a community and a $150 stipend per family to apply toward their child's enrichment and growth.

Where: Antioch Baptist Church, 1415 Holloway Street, Durham, NC

When: Every Saturday, April 1st--April 29th, 11:00am--4:00pm
