JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Dozens of American students from a Brooklyn charter school are visiting South Africa to explore African cultures and South Africa's journey from racial tension to reconciliation. The Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood is known for its African-American heritage.

The trip is a chance to expose the children to African cultures and South Africa's journey from racial tension to reconciliation.

The students also visited the Constitutional Court building, constructed in part from bricks that were originally part of a prison during white minority rule known as apartheid.
