Pride, is one of three core values of The Black Swan Academy. We believe that youth should be proud about who they are and where they come from. This writing contest is meant to provide youth with the opportunity to explore the uniqueness of their own history and culture and reflect on the impact that it has had in their personal lives, as well as, the lives of others.
Why do you have PRIDE? Choose a moment in black history, or a person, place or thing that makes you proud to be a Black American. Explain why this makes you proud. How did it impact your life or the lives of others?
Be creative! Submissions can be in the form of an essay, poem, song or monologue.
