Detroit: Lively lunchroom activity at the first publicly-funded, African-centered school in America

Founded in 1989, Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy was the first publicly-funded, African-centered school in America. The school library program centered on African and African-American materials, not only as a as a means of extending students' academic work, but to urge its students to continue their rich, cultural legacy. “With the intensified objectives of Detroit Public Schools to improve and increase reading literacy, the grant allows the purchase of books and related materials and equipment that will better prepare Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy to meet the challenges of the school district and most of all the need of our students.”
