Race To Knowledge, Inc. conducts the core projects and youth residing in the Bronzeville Community located on the South side of Chicago who attends Chicago Public Schools. The budding scholars spearhead historical research connecting curriculum ideas to technology. Information gathered is used to create virtual and interpretive tour back to slavery, a span of over some 500 years. Chicago"s Underground Railroad Project builds on the historical events of African Americans in Chicago leading to the freeing of the slaves and over 215 years to present. The archival project takes us through ages in American history, the Agriculture, Industrial, Commerce and Information Age.
