Scholar-In-Residence Fellow & Teaching Artist Work with PGCAAMCC

From 2019-2020, Dr. Ali-Coleman worked with the Prince George's County African-American Museum and Cultural Center as a teaching artist and Scholar-In-Residence fellow. As a teaching artist, she worked with students at Annapolis Road Academy Alternative High School. Annapolis Road Academy is one of two alternative academy programs in Prince George's County, MD with a primary focus on students in grades 9 through 10  who are experiencing behavioral and attendance concerns in the regular classroom setting. Dr. Ali-Coleman used a multi-disciplinary approach with the students, teaching the history of the Piscataway native people of Maryland and the Guinea people of Africa and their early existence in Maryland during colonial times. Using the drum as a centerpiece for learning and arts creation, she led the children in activities centered on identity, culture and communication, executed through designing drums and crafting spoken word pieces.

As a Scholar-In-Residence fellow, she held a monthly forum titled, Sunday Scholar Salon. The topics drew from her educational and professional expertise in education, arts, African-American history and culture. She curated the exhibit Flying Towards Freedom: Migration Stories of Maryland Families which was presented by the museum and installed at the Prince George's County Memorial Library System's Oxon Hill branch. The exhibit ran from February 2020 to the end of March 2020.
