Unapologetically Black Education
Personal, world-class education at home for $10 per session
We don’t just teach reading and math.
At Reconstruction, we teach Black Glory, Black Love, Black Genius, Black Kindness, and Black Excellence. Traditional education struggles to discuss Black contributions in an accurate, identity-affirming way. We tell the real story.
Reconstruction empowers everyone to shine.
The Come Up
“A people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” - Marcus Garvey
The Warm Up
“If you know from whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go.” - James Baldwin
The Glow Up
“To know how much there is to know is the beginning of learning to live.” - Dorothy West
The Show Up
“If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.” — Toni Morrison
One-of-a-Kind, World-Class Curriculum
Designed by diverse educators, for diverse students, our curriculum highlights Black people, Black culture, and Black contributions to our country and our world.
Small Online Groups
Live sessions led by outstanding young professionals, content specialists, artists, and other charismatic leaders.
Teaching Neglected Topics
Our mission is to help students see history and education in a broader context that resonates with their culture and identity. More James Baldwin than James Joyce. More Toni Morrison than William Faulkner.
