Our mission at Sweet Blackberry is to bring little known stories of African American achievement to children everywhere.
These triumphant stories of individuals surmounting the odds and making invaluable contributions to our society are inspirational and empowering, but our schools often lack the time and resources to teach our children more than a handful of stories of African Americans in history.
Schedule Your Virtual Visit!
Sweet Blackberry will virtually come to your classroom to share triumphant stories of individuals surmounting the odds and making invaluable contributions to our society.
Presentations are tailored to each audience. Themes addressed include surmounting odds, African American history, inventors and their innovations, as well as storytelling, creative writing, and filmmaking.
The Concept for Our Children
Sweet Blackberry’s stories illustrate for our children the concept that tremendous obstacles are actually opportunities for greatness! Children of all races and ethnicities feel a sense of shared history when they learn about the real people whose lives and work impact their everyday lives.
