We imagine an education system, in formal and informal settings, that celebrates and centers Black culture.
It fosters a sense of identity, pride and self-worth by offering a culturally relevant curriculum and anti-racist pedagogy. It promotes the interconnectedness of spirit and mind, engages the community, and promotes restorative justice. Education means; opportunity to ignite natural curiosity, a mode of cultural transmission, oral storytelling, practices of handing down rituals and experiential and kinesthetic learning.
It means placing strong emphasis on healing and mental health, while creating an inclusive and thriving educational environment for Black students to flourish.
