Building a Freedom School Movement in Detroit

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What are we learning as we build a freedom schools movement in Detroit? We reflect on the history and present work of the Detroit Independent Freedom Schools Movement (DIFS) that operates several freedom school sites throughout the city. We consider the relationship between our mission to "create free, African-centered, loving educational experiences for Detroit children and families" and a much longer tradition of educational experiments focused on community strength and self-determination.
