The Congress represents the vision of a network of Black educators and activists— in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. Our intention is to give explicit attention to intergenerational collaboration— to elevate and celebrate “what works” for African children in educational settings and to “pass the torch” to those coming on behind us. We envision a Congress of working delegates and praxis* teams who represent educators at all levels, parents, students and community activists. To effect our agenda, the intentional integration of knowledge systems from pre-school to higher education, family and community-based learning, including the arts, are required. This nexus must be interdisciplinary, thus delegates from Schools of Education, Black Studies programs, other content specialists, community organizations and advocacy groups, as well as researchers engaged in liberating education models are invited.
