TRIO Upward Bound Interns

The summer of 2017 we had the delight to have Yashaan Johnson as our TRIO intern. He arrived at the center just as we were preparing to set up our fall exhibit, “The American Negro Expo”. In this video, Yashaan explains the steps necessary to prepare and install an exhibition.

The summer of 2016 we had the pleasure of having Jessica Foster, Elizabeth Gonzaga, Miliyea Greene, Adam Harris, Ariel Evans, Daniel Methene, and Johnae Brown as our TRIO interns. They, like many students on campus, had a difficult time finding the African-American Cultural Center. The interns helped us create a video showing where exactly (or not exactly) our center is.

The summer of 2015 four Upward Bound students from surrounding Chicago neighborhoods interned at our office and contributed a blog post about their visit to the Jane Addams Hull- House Museum that can be found at:
