SuperCamp Showcase

SuperCamp Showcase

This year’s SuperCamp theme is MOBILIZATION.   SuperGirls learned about four key areas of mobilization for people of African descent: the African experience on the continent as well as the AbolitionistVoting Rights/Suffragethe Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movement in the US. They learned about the ways in which activists define the social issues, raised awareness, build coalitions, developed strategies as well as the way we have implemented and monitored success in an effort to move toward sustainable change. More specifically, SuperGirls studied African and African American History, worked together collectively to promote the good within themselves and each other, learned ways to keep their minds and bodies healthy, shared their gifts and talents through volunteerism. They also expanded their artistic expression with photography, art and dance.

 

On August 3rd and August 4th, they will be sharing what they have learned in their two showcases.  SuperCamp New Jersey’s event takes place at Speedway Academies on August 3rd from 6-8pm. SuperGirls Amina, Tori and Marley Dias will host the event.

 

SuperCamp Philadelphia has completed their full inaugural year. Their showcase will take place August 4th from 1-3pm at Taller Puertorriqueno. Dr. Janice Johnson Dias will host the event with music by DJ Scotty Nevers.
