Empowered, educated black youth.
The Black History Project is a youth empowerment organization focusing on youth ages 13 - 21 (high-school and college aged) dedicated to developing the next generation of black leaders through a black historical lens. Founded in 2015, we originated as a program-based organization focused on teaching Black history to students. We have since expanded to help students by empowering them to live out black history through education, civic engagement, and career readiness.
We are pleased to announce that we are expanding programs to reach across the state of Florida in 2023.
The Black History Project is a 501c3 non-profit. Each facilitator who teaches the curriculum and leads the discussion are trained educators with the credentials and experience that qualifies them to teach the lessons. All staff and volunteers must pass a background check to participate. Learn more about our programs here.
