The TeenSHARP 2024 Black History Challenge is the latest initiative in the college access organization’s ongoing commitment to providing students and communities with access to culturally relevant education and resources.

Founded in 2009, TeenSHARP has a proven track record of helping students gain admission to highly competitive colleges, graduate with little to no debt, and become leaders in their communities.

“An important part of our college, career, and life preparation for our students is cultivating their power to create and advocate in the face of society’s many injustices,” Atnre Alleyne, co-founder and CEO of TeenSHARP said. “At a time when some are fighting to restrict students’ access to teaching about race and the truth about America’s history, we want our community to demand more.”

The 2024 Black History Challenge covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Foundations in Black History
  • What You Probably Didn’t Know About Healthcare in Black History
  • Black History in Business, Entrepreneurship, and the Economy
  • Black History, Legacy, and Innovation in Education
  • Black History in Politics and Government
  • The Legacy of Black Activism and Resistance
  • Black History in Arts & Culture
  • Black History in Sports that You Probably Didn’t Know
  • Black Writers, Thinkers, and Visionaries
  • Black History in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
  • International Affairs, Pan-Africanism, and Black History

Participants will have access to engaging content, expert insights, and interactive activities that encourage critical thinking and reflection. The course aims to inspire participants to take action and become agents of change in their communities.

The TeenSHARP 2024 Black History Challenge course is open to students, parents, educators, and anyone else who wants to deepen their understanding of history and take action.
