Doing "The Work"
Black Star Rising creates socially-conscious educational material that inspires, enlightens and activates transformation. To do "the work" of debunking racial ignorance and eliminating inequality, it requires a serious engagement with history, power, ideology and culture.
"We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society." - Angela Davis
Black Star Rising curates educational experiences that draw from the best of Black intellectual traditions. Our aim is to elevate the conversation and empower individuals to make a difference.
How We Get Free
Sharpen your cultural intelligence beyond basic awareness and towards critical conscisousness and transformative power. On this journey, we "go for broke." A bold Black history education is imperative. Re-education is preparation.
Use Primary Sources to Explore "OUR"story
Our Black history units are designed for individual study, diversity professionals, and teachers (even with minimal-to-no training in Black Studies). Engaging primary source material sharpens your ability to interpret and analyze historic events and their present-day implications. We bring focus to those perspectives and events that have been undervalued, distorted or ignored in standard narratives of world history and school curricula.
