Khyndal reflects at the South Side Community Arts Center
The benefits of the Sojourner Scholars program extend well beyond the classroom, as students connect interdisciplinary texts, themes and projects to their lived experiences. In a safe and welcoming environment, intellectual risks can be taken, urgent questions can be examined, and understandings can be forged.
Our partnerships with vital South Side Chicago cultural organizations -- including Diasporal Rhythms, the Hyde Park Art Center, Rebuild Foundation, Smart Museum, South Side Community Art Center, and the Smart Museum -- are essential to these endeavors.
Our workshops, field trips, and formal classes draw scholars and their families into incredible events taking place across the greater South Side and Chicago-at-large.
