Orita's Cross Freedom School

Pleasant Hope Baptist Church is the home and headquarters of Orita's Cross Freedom School, an African-centered youth educational program that teaches Africana history and hands-on skills to inspire the next generation of change makers!  While we are not a state certified everyday school, we do provide a safe space for Black children to celebrate their heritage, culture, and unique identity on days when school is not in session.

Our Next Freedom School Session Is:


Friday, November 5, 2021

8:00AM - 2:30PM

Pleasant Hope Baptist Church

In light of our commitment to health and safety, we'll be masked throughout the day unless we're eating or at recess.

Breakfast will be provided - not lunch!  Children should bring their own packed lunch for the day.


Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III
Founding Executive Director
