Introducing EmancipatED, community education resources that combines research, pedagogy, and African-Diasporan history to support the enrichment of Black families and our larger kinship communities.
With our first resource, our goal is to empower Black kinship communities (or “Community Kin” as we like to call them) using rebel Black societies, known as “maroon communities”, as a guide. Maroon Communities were free communities and nation-states founded by enslaved Africans who ran away and built their own communities hidden away from colonial plantation societies...this is information we all need in our mental rolodex.
Our EmancipatED Experience encourages hope, adventure, togetherness, and learning through the exploration of these free rebel societies.
We aim to support the transformation of how we see ourselves as a people, and the way we engage with each other as kin.
