DOING FOR OURSELVES
We realize that the public school systems can't and won't teach our children about their history and culture. The system is set up from a Eurocentric perspective. So we work to correct the lens and center the Black Experience in all modes of learning.
We realize that this is essential in creating a world in which they can see themselves as great without the validation of a system that seeks to keep them oppressed.
We teach self-love and self-acceptance first so they grow up valuing and loving themselves.
