Black Violin: “Intersections” is an inclusive course that welcomes students from all schools of thought  to engage in a more meaningful conversation about race, creativity, and the pursuit of success. Discussions begin with a live performance or demonstration by Black Violin to illustrate the day’s lesson and to empower students to use their passion and creativity to fuel positive discourse and push social awareness. See a sample of last year’s classes here.  If you want to go ahead and get with the program, you can contact corryn@their Foundation site.
