Uhuru Youth Scholars use Issue Trees to focus their research questions
This is a documentary that the scholars created in their quest to answer why so many youth in St. Paul don’t know about or feel as though they have access to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Most of the film was shot on location at HBCUs in Georgia and Alabama.



The Uhuru Youth Scholars published a book documenting the various ways they have come to see the world calledĀ Finding Our Lens. Check it out!
