Awards, Quotes, Testimonials

"We were very impressed with how the program wove together culture, economics, current events and sports. The combination really held the kids interest and sparked some interesting dialogue at our end."

"Our kids liked seeing the photographs and hearing the human side of the history of baseball. After our disconnect, they wanted to know when we could do this again."

"Our school does not have a very diverse population and our kids have little opportunity to stretch their boundaries. This program was especially wonderful for us because it allowed us to introduce our kids to black history in a context that they are familiar with."

"From beginning to end, the process was handled professionally and cordially. Your scheduling policies also work well with our goals as a district and allow us to participate with little disruption."
