Beyond Boundaries in Ghana

June 13, 2010 - 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM


Ellen M. Blalock, a Central New York artist, has produced a 45-minute documentary: Beyond Boundaries in Ghana. In 2006 she traveled two weeks with BB. They first traveled north to Bolgatanga. Over the years BB has built small partnerships with CENSUDI and the Single Mothers Association. BB funds several CENSUDI scholarships every year to educate girls.  BB experiences the country from Mole National Park to Cape Coast. This documentary is about how BB travels and how people are changed and moved because of their involvement with this grassroots organization.

Beyond Boundaries, founded in 1993, is a grassroots group based in Syracuse, New York, which encourages cross-cultural understanding and self-awareness. Beyond Boundaries hopes to build – in New Central New York, in the United States and abroad – modest but lasting and just relationships across cultural and class boundaries.

Ellen M. Blalock has worked on several project, The Fathers Project (young African American fathers), CNY Pride Families, and The Quilt Project, to name a few.

The $5 suggested donation will be put toward the scholarship fund.
