Larry Long will be bringing Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song process to the Racial Equity Leadership Institute in St. Paul, Minnesota this summer from June 13 – 24. High School students will gain training and service hours that will help them develop skills to further their college and career readiness. Middle School participants will develop their will, skill, knowledge, and capacity to be systemic student leaders for racial equity. All student participants will spend at least 50% of their time engaged in the process of illustrating and writing books, as well as writing and recording songs that will honor diverse elders from the community. This process will help honor our racial, cultural, and intergenerational diversity while helping us fulfill our mission to develop strong schools and strong communities.
