It is always amazing to me when organizations find interventions that can radically change the way young people view their place in the world. As you can see in the video, this is an example of how Chicago Freedom School uses music and chants to build the self-efficacy of young people. There is something incredibly powerful about music in any type of community building process. In this particular instance it is even more encouraging to see black youth building their confidence in what is essentially a literacy program. The history of Chicago Freedom Schools is one that is important to know, but also this organization should be highlighted for challenging some of the disparities that exist in the school system.
