1. What do you mean by the name “Black on Black Education”?
If the theory of Black on Black crime is going to exist, then there can certainly be Black on Black education, in fact, there is a tradition of Black on Black education in the Black community that is much stronger and much longer than Black on Black crime. We named our business Black on Black Education to honor the tradition of collectivist communities passing down their knowledge, skills, and traditions. We will follow in their footsteps.
2. How do I partner with Black on Black Education?

4. I’m not Black; is this a space for me?
We do not, nor would we ever, discriminate against any person because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, physical or mental disability, age, or any other identity marker. We are committed to uplifting the voices of Black and Brown Educators in support of Black and Brown students and recognize that allies and co-conspirators are an integral part of the path toward educational equity.
We invite all non-Black folks who are committed or want to commit to education equity to listen to our podcast, attend our conferences, sign up for our email list, and tap into our conversations about how to make the system what our students need and deserve.
