Dr. Perryman has dedicated her career to designing culturally relevant programs that move the discussion from failure to potential and hope for Black kids. In this book, she guides educators, school administers, and social service directors through her ELEVATE! Program’s detailed lesson plan, which provide a road map to engage children’s creativity, to teach children how to lift themselves and each other up, and to build community and harmony while providing continual motivation through music and affirmations.
