As educators, our charge is twofold: 1) to present empirical data and primary source evidence related to the history and culture of Black people and 2) to counter the mis-education and bias that continue to shape mainstream curricula.
Ultimately, we at the Education for Life Academy believe that education is a life-long pursuit. We believe that education must serve a purpose beyond a diploma or a degree – it must provide enlightenment and be relevant to our own experiences. If education is to have a larger societal benefit it must embrace truth and broaden our worldview so that we can appreciate ourselves as well as other cultures and ideas. It is with this philosophy that we have developed our Standing on the Shoulders of Giants curriculum.
