Chancellor’s Day with Apollo Education

Spend Chancellor’s Day with Apollo Education for a full-day workshop with Apollo New Works artists, Black Gotham Experience and Soul Science Lab. This workshop created for educators of grades K through 12, will expand your perception of the Harlem Renaissance with a modern 21st century lens, refreshing how the legacy of the Harlem Renaissance is taught. 

We will start the day with a keynote from Black Gotham Experience’s Founder and Lead Creative Kamau Ware. Study Black Gotham Experience’s perspectives about the study of community history and participate in a walking tour through the Apollo’s Harlem neighborhood. This interactive tour will explore the ways that Harlem is a center of expression, inventiveness, and activism for thinkers and artists from across the African Diaspora.  

In the afternoon, Soul Science Lab will share excerpts from their new show The Renaissance Mixtape that highlight the importance of history and actively imagine what healthy and joyful Black futures can look and feel like. Alongside this innovative team of artists and educators, you will explore new ways to introduce students to study the past, examine the present, and consider their role in the future of their community. This workshop includes a songwriting workshop based on the core concepts of The Renaissance Mixtape. Ending the day, we will share our creations with each other, reveling in the spirit of the Harlem Renaissance.  

All educators are welcome! The full day program is appropriate for all K-12 educators who teach the Harlem Renaissance. 

Please dress comfortably, walking tours of Harlem will be included.  

Six hours of New York State CTLE (Continuing Teacher and Leader Education) credit will be available for attendance.
