Each scholar will have the opportunity to study culture, monuments, and historical artifacts from 3 countries in 7 days. Each scholar will be required to complete a 14-week workshop to earn this valuable experience. The workshop will include, character education, self & historical reflection, guest speakers, group discussions, voluntary community service hours and fund raising. This Study abroad program will give the NSA Scholars a better vantage point of the true studies of the slave trade. For many African-Americans, Alex Haley’s "Roots" story is the main reference to the existence of slavery. This trip will give the scholars a new sense of understanding and inspire them to uncover their thirst for historical knowledge.
