Online Cultural Infusion Programming

At the age of 21, Prenicia Clifton made a pledge to make a difference in the lives of 10,000 children. She has now changed that goal to a million! She believes that this can be accomplished through implementation of culturally infused programming and community advocacy, so she founded Seein’ Is Believin’ to introduce multicultural infusion in the K–12 curriculum by bringing professionals of color in the fields of arts, science, mathematics, technology, and other areas into classrooms through a virtual experience. Examples of Seein’ Is Believin’ programming include improving math, science, and history classes through culturally based life-readiness cooking classes; and infusing traditional music curricula with multicultural composers, singers, and dancers. Among the classes offered this fall are “The Great Outdoors Is for Everyone” (breaking down cultural stereotypes around outdoor exploration); “Our Food or History” (a four-week virtual culturally immersive cooking class that teaches children math, science, literacy, and history through food); “The Culturally Competent Comic Book Experience” (a four-week writing and animation workshop that stimulates literacy skills through multicultural comic book creations); and “My Voice Matters” (an advocacy and self-esteem workshop that teaches youth the power of their voices in any situation).
