"Young black boys have powerful stories. Stories that have been intentionally devalued due to the oppressive history of our country. They deserve an education that creates opportunities for them to cultivate their story and, by doing so, spark a network of believers around them who demand excellence with and for them. ​ The Creative School program (through TBI) does just that; connecting artists to Kings to develop, capture, and share their stories.

"The Creative School Class", tells the story of a contest to find the most creative class in the school. But the idea was not to excel individually in arts or crafts, as is the usual understanding of creativity in children. We were asked to find an idea that would be socially beneficial. Then, we had to implement our idea through cooperation. Through this experience, we learned about the environment and recycling, but also about consensus, commitment and engagement, solution finding, collaboration, and creative thinking. If this sounds familiar, it is because these values are crucial to modern entrepreneurship, since they help us adapt to an ever-changing environment. We learned to look at things from outside the box and to find solutions accordingly. Sharing our story with your children, you can teach them to do the same and take advantage of life's opportunities.
