Black School’d

 Black School’d

Black School’d is a project designed with the goal of eroding the foundation of anti-Black racism in the BC school system. Based in inter-community collaboration and Black-youth leadership, Black School’d offers workshops, presentations, and other alternative services that address the structural inequalities and anti-Black racism in BC educational settings. By acknowledging the diversity, complexity and intersectionality of Blackness, Black School’d approaches curriculum development and EDI through a multi-voiced, youth-led framework.



Black School’d is a cohort originally designed by four Black and mixed youth of differing Black experiences, ethnicities, and cultures, (Kaiya Jacob, Karmella Benedito De Barros, Lexi Mellish Mingo, and Vanessa Fajemisin) who have all completed primary and secondary education in BC. As both students and graduates of BC Universities, the Black School’d cohort plans to work with primary, secondary, and former students to start building a plan to develop BC’s Black history Curriculum. This project aims to centre the varied experiences and histories of Black people across this land.
