The Journal of Black Educology is a collective of Black folx working to amplify and empower without the white gaze. The journal goes beyond the scope of academics to recognize the movers and shakers of emancipatory movements. We imagine this journal as a vehicle towards revolution. To that extent, this journal informs, confers, and collaborates with educational voices across the Black diaspora. Our scope and sequence focuses on the past, present, and future of Black education caught in the underbelly of western education.
The Journal of Black Educology is an open-access mixtape that moves beyond academic articles to feature various art forms and voices that are typically muted. Though traditional mixtapes only include songs, the Journal of Black Educology highlights text, audio, images, transcripts, zines, and lyrics.
The main tenets of Black Educology’s educational vision are rooted in Critical Race Theory with a focus on counter storytelling, Black Critical Theory, Afro-Pessimism, and Black Educational Epistemology. Our work is grounded in creating albums that are both revolutionary and emancipatory in the name of love, study, struggle and refusal.
