“As a diverse-by-design school, the 'Beautiful Brown Girl Project' will serve as a powerful tool to aid in Bricolage Academy's commitment to teaching anti-bias strategies to foster positive academic, social and behavioral development. With professional development opportunities already put in place to address race and student engagement among teachers, significantly high parental involvement, and student learning opportunities focusing on race, bias and stereotypes provided throughout the school year, the addition of more conscious learning opportunities for our population young black girls will only improve our efforts to combat racism even more.”
