The Premier Visual of Black Male Educators, 1st edition.
UpLIFT is dedicated to celebrating black male educators across the USA - For Us, By Us - Combining vivid visuals and reflections in combatting oppressive experiences through this innovative affinity movement.
Across the USA black male educators make up about 2% of all educators despite research indicating the impact educators of color have on all students. Black male educators are faced with so many challenges in the field of education. From isolation, racial bias, racial inequities, self hate, tokenism and the simple fact that the system was never designed for people of color let alone black men. This publication is created in the spirit of decolonizing these educational oppressive challenges and UpLift the experiences of black male educators in a reflective visual approach.
Proceeds from the sales of this publication will establish our philanthropic innovation, Fund4Good. This Fund will utilize a participatory grantmaking model and provide micro grants to Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) community builders.
