Unapologetically Black Education
Personal, world-class education at home
Online classes with teachers who get it
Our classes are held remotely via our online platform, with real instructors leading groups of six students at a time.
Traditional education struggles to discuss Black contributions to American and world history in an accurate, identity-affirming way. We’re here to help all students see themselves differently -- in school and in life.
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
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.
