The Legacy Circle is dedicated to empowering African Diaspora youth and adults in New York City through cultural arts education. Our goal is to awaken young people to their identity as African descendants and their legacy as leaders and Maroon Warriors. Our Training Institute will prepare African Diaspora teaching artists to initiate young people into grassroots action. It will impart tools for cultural arts educators such as leadership development and youth community organizing using arts and culture as the vehicle. Teaching artists will engage in residencies where youth will create cultural art pieces that affirm who they are and what they envision for their education and their communities. Youth will then use their art to organize for power in their villages.
