We understand that the events in a community spill over into the classrooms and impact the learning and one of the issues we address is cultural awareness, which begins with a genealogical study and identifying family culture. This concept is reinforced with the opportunity to travel the diaspora and experience authentic african lifestyles as we are immersed in culture and history, and able to apply leadership skills learned in the academy.

Justification of need
The state of achievement gap
‘’according to the department of states stanford public policy forum articles, “why is san francisco the states’s worst county for black student achievement?’ according to the data, nine out of ten black students have failed reading and math exams. And that san francisco, a progressive enclave and beacon for technological innovation, has the worst black student achievement of any county in california.
The problem in san franciscois that “there are huge gaps between black kid’s scores and those of their white peers.” According to the report, one strategy to boost academic achievemnt is to better prepare students to join a modern workforce is a citywide focus on science, technology, engineering and math instruction, accompaning that objective is “ a vision that strongly communicates to children and families of san francico that the adults of this city care about their futures.
If the students are failing, the need for intervention is prevalent prior to approaching the learning curve required to attempt to approach science, technology, math, etc. The language of these sciences must be comprehended. “ once that relationship exist and the students buy into the idea that their school work matters, that black lives matter, the journey, a passion for learning, begins.
