Film: How one School is seeking to “build a bridge” for their community

DC Public Schools is creating a new initiative to build curriculum for African American History. Ayanna Muhammad’s class will serve as a pilot project connecting Museum Studies with a project based curriculum for the course.

The goal is to turn their high school campus into a living museum by training students in the careers of a museum. She will share their process of creating the Living Museum, their community partnership experience, interdisciplinary (history, art, math, research writing) curriculum and career exposure series.

Ayanna Muhammad,
Artist, Writer, Filmmaker, Educator, Luke C. Moore High School, Washington DC and DC Public Schools
