Teen Tour Campaign

We are kicking off our campaign on #GivingTuesday November 29th 2016 to raise the funds to provide free walking tours for 1,000 New York City teens in 2017. The Black Gotham Experience Teen Tours are visual and kinesthetic moments designed to give youth a broader and deeper understanding of New York City’s history and how it connects to their lives. This experience offers a dynamic way to explore themes covered on Regents Exams and Common Core Standards. You can use this donation link to support our campaign online.

Responses from Teens

Thank you for your Black Gotham tour. I had a great time and grasped knowledge on black history that I wasn’t aware of. I really learned a lot, as I lacked knowledge and wasn’t taught at school. The walk was really educational and intriguing. I hope you continue with photography and Black Gotham.

Sincerely, Deandra

Thank you for giving us a wonderful tour. It really changed the way we view New York City and its untold black history. It also showed us that there is history behind the simplest things in our environment. Thank you again and good luck completing your graphic novel.

Sincerely, Leonard

 

The Black Gotham Experience was sparked by the question of  a teenager in 2008. Help us give this multidimensional learning experience back to the youth. Thank you.
