“How can you know where you’re going, if you don’t know where you’ve been?” That question is the crux of the movement to expose students early in life to international travel and the beauty of their motherland Africa. How do you explain to Black students in America that they really come from Africa and their ancestors were Africans? Well to put it simply – you teach them, you tell them, and you show them!
The Bradley Academy Inc, founded by Naomi Hill Bradley, is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to the exposure and education of the youth from a very young age.
