Summer of Black Girl Magic
June 10 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Summer of Black Girl Magic organization invites middle school girls
(ages 10-14) to apply to our 2-week summer leadership camp. The program will run from June 10-June 21st at Coliseum College Prep Academy in Oakland. Students will participate in workshops focusing on leadership, self-image, entrepreneurship, public speaking, film-making, and more.
In the Oakland Unified School District, 69 percent of all girls who are suspended are Black. Moreover, a recent study from the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality found that African-American girls as young as 5 are perceived as less innocent and requiring less protection than their white peers.
The Summer of Black Girls Magic program is an affirming space that supports girls in examining their identities, while empowering them to create, explore, and develop new skills. This is sure to be a summer of black girl magic!
