African Diaspora Fellows Program

For NC Middle and High School Social Studies, World Language, and English Language Arts Teachers

Program Overview

The African Diaspora Fellows Program (ADFP) is a professional development opportunity for middle and high school social studies, world language, and English language arts teachers in North Carolina. Through participation in ADFP, teachers enhance their expertise in teaching about the histories, politics, and cultures of African, Afro-Latin American, and African American communities.

The African Diaspora Fellows Program is designed to:

  • Enhance and strengthen Fellows’ knowledge of the histories, politics, and cultures of African, Afro-Latin American, and African American communities.
  • Develop curriculum units and materials on the African diaspora for grades 6-12 social studies, world languages, and English language arts classes in North Carolina.
  • Disseminate curriculum units and materials on the African diaspora for grades 6-12 social studies, world languages, and English language arts classes in North Carolina through online platforms and in-person presentations.
  • Increase implementation of curriculum units and materials on the African diaspora into grades 6-12 social studies, world languages, and English language arts courses.
