Free MasterClass for Kids | Rising Above Trauma | 24th July

The Masterclass provides a safe place for our  children to open up about their experiences of microaggressions and racism. Here are is why you need to sign up your kids. Racism is real. It is not some imagined nonsense from lazy minds. It can leave scars. And wounds.  Here are some examples of what black children deal with in their classrooms and in the play grounds of their schools. 

When you are called a ‘chimpanzee’ or an orangutan by your friends at school and the teacher never sees it happen. Here are some uncomfortable examples.

When your sandwich is ridiculed at school.

When your teachers set low expectations for your kids.

When your kids spend more time in the school corridors or in the restroom than in class actually learning.

When your child does not want to go to school.

When your child wants to have a light skin.

When your child stops talking.

When your child stays in their room every day after school.

Artist Fetsum-Teclemariam Teaches Painting To Seniors

LCCMedia Foundation is fortunate to have procured the services of one of Edmonton’s greatest artist. Humble and loyal, Eritrean artist Fetsum-Teclemariam is like no other artist. He is deeply aware of  his gift and his humanity. In soft tones, we talked about his life as an Edmonton artist when we visited his gallery in down town Edmonton. It was deeply obvious that Fetsum has found his calling.
