How We Celebrated Black History Month

Mae Jemison is the first black female astronaut to travel into space. She became a doctor and served in the Peace Corps all BEFORE serving as a mission specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor.⁠ 

Her career continues today and it’s incredible to watch the evolution of her remarkable journey. Mae reminds us that anything is truly possible.⁠

In honor of Black History Month, we have featured some of our incredible black instructors and students among our community who are an integral part of the KWKC family. Here are a few of their stories.  

Black History Month

QL graduate, Joesph Harrison, aka Joe Dreamz, is making his mission happen.⁠

It might sound straightforward, yet his mission has proven very effective: Inspire people to live their “dreamz”.⁠ He makes music, videos, sells merch and even has BIG plans to create a movie or media company one day!⁠

Gewel Richardson, is taking action toward her mission. Read her own words.

“I just graduated with a dual masters degree in Engineering and Science focusing in Sustainable Smart Cities.

Earlier this year I ran for School Board in the same county I attended school in to be the voice for so many of the youth, especially our people of color that were not receiving the appropriate resources to be change-makers in their own right.

The mission of my life is to embrace our brilliance, innovate our excellence, educate our future by instilling in the youth the confidence to be change-makers in the world.”

In 2020 he helped us coordinate our most successful fundraiser ever helping us raise more than $200k in less than a week. We are so grateful for his leadership and our students are too.
