Off of Martin Luther King highway in Lansing is Shabazz Public School Academy (SPSA). A charter dedicated to giving students the basic learning skills in reading, writing and math along with so much more. Shabazz Public School Academy is named after Ell Hajj Malik El Shabazz, better known as Malcolm X. The school’s focus is providing an Afrocentric learning experience to its students and empowering them while they’re getting ready to move on to the next level. Many of the students are proud to be receiving such a great opportunity from SPSA. “You can get a great education and learn more than you usually do at different kinds of schools,” said Christopher Isaac, an SPSA student.
