Apocalyptic Education is a meditation, a posture, an epistemological stance rooted in African ancestral ways of knowing. Learn more about how we ruminate.

The mission of Apocalyptic Education (AE) is to disrupt normative beliefs that, particularly for Black children, increased schooling leads to social and economic uplift, critical thinking, and a sustainable sense of purpose. AE is rooted in an empirical understanding of the inextricable link between the wellness of Black children and the abolition of schooling--its historical and ongoing investments in structural, institutional, and interpersonal forms of anti-Blackness. In doing so, we aim to distinguish schooling from education, to ensure that all [Black] children have access to quality education (knowledge, resources, and communities) en route to their well-being. AE invites and partners with educational practitioners to access a greater capacity to center the wellness of Black children by divesting from the maintenance of schooling.
