1
Service

E-12 and Teacher Candidate Development through our Teacher Forum. Our workshop includes HD video tutorials, lesson plans, coaching and ongoing support. We are directing more of this service into higher education to enhance the cultural and family capacity of the teachers of tomorrow.

2
Media

HD videos that enhance our articles and preserve our stories. Called "Voices That Guide Us," they assist teachers and inspire all students and communities to value themselves, education and African America more. We also use our Podcast, Blog and Social Media pages for interaction (FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram); COME FOLLOW US!!!!!

3
Programs

Our two Street Team programs bring middle school youth of different races together with Elders for recorded and published dialogue. This allows cross-cultural and cross-generational bonding for a valuable life experience of inersectionality. We also challenge youth to research our content (episodes, locations or people) to create (write) provocative questions. They verbalize and we publish their question on camera so they interact with and teach the world.

Products

(UNDER ADVISEMENT & PREP) Our Black Heritage coffee mug, Our signature T Shirts (coming this spring) and our Go Fish card game “Fishing The Registry” is being coded into an APP and a Registry Membership. By joining, your level (s) help us expand our mission. Stay tuned and thank you for your interest and support. We hope to have this ready by summer.
