Since 2010 the month of June has always been a time when we at CCEC would prepare to explore and educate our youth with our traditional summer camp, “A Taste of New Orleans and Louisiana History.”
The focus has always been to educate young African Americans and youth allies about their history in the development of our country and great state of Louisiana.
Responding to COVID-19 concerns in 2021, we have decided to modify our camp into a “Summer Experience.” We will take 20 youth on Saturdays and allow them to explore special attractions while also educating them about community COVID-19 safety tips. Our first stop will be on June 5, 2021. We will visit the Studio Be and discuss how art depicts our past and present reality.
June 5th summer camp experience begins. You must be registered to attend. Visit our website to enroll! Historical Facts: April 1868: Louisiana's Reconstruction government approves a Constitution that extends voting rights to black males and integrates public schools and public accommodations.
