Reclaiming His Life and Spirit

David Walker doesn’t appear in standard history textbooks and he’s rarely discussed in the classroom. An education and action program called “Reclaiming David Walker” is being organized by The David Walker Memorial Project to help bridge this knowledge gap.

This after-school initiative will offer opportunities for six high school students to learn about David Walker and to communicate and celebrate what he means to them through their own artistic creations – like video, hip-hop/spoken word pieces, artwork, blog posts, and skits. These, in turn, can serve as educational resources for numerous other students and teachers, with dissemination through the Internet and social media networks.
