Move Towards Social Action: Empowerment through Physical Education

By: Vernon Lindsay (Capoeira/Physical Education Instructor)

Teaching Social Justice is an ongoing and holistic effort, rather than a 50 minute time block in the academic day. We use Physical Education, such as Capoeira (a Afro-Brazilian Martial Art), as an opportunity to teach children resistance and social justice concepts. Village Leadership Academy & Capoeira Akebelan will be presenting, A Closer Look at How Culturally Relevant Physical Education Empowers Youth and Promotes Social Action at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) Summit. This event will be held on November 5 (details on the brochure). If you are in the Chicago area, please come by and check us out!
