Focus on the History and Heritage of African Americans
in the U.S. South

Learning for Social Impact (LSI) immerses HEAF students through research, networking, hands on activities, community service and travel to foster critical thinking, creative problem solving, social philanthropy and leadership through service learning.


This year’s LSI program focuses on the history and heritage of African Americans in the US South and includes two trips:
Baltimore, Maryland
Savannah, Georgia

In April, the group of HEAF 11th and 12th graders explored Maryland’s past and visited Morgan State University.

This summer, July 18-23, the group will spend six days exploring the preservation of African-American history and culture in Savannah and Georgia’s coastal islands, including cultural immersion with a focus on the Gullah-Geechee people who are descended from formerly enslaved people, primarily from the West Coast of Africa.
