The Black Syllabus is committed to promoting literacy and holistic education within Black communities by amplifying Black narratives, research, and ancestral knowledge in accessible ways. We provide educational materials that connect scholars with Indigenous practices intended to foster knowledge rooted in transformative justice. We work in solidarity with other communities experiencing marginalization who are committed to uprooting systems of injustice.


The Black Body

Black Care Networks

Black Land

The Black Psyche & Spirit

Black Liberation & Solidarity

These pillars, inevitably overlapping, are represented in all the work that we produce and engage with. Centering these values we challenge conventional, trauma-informed ways of being in favor of sustainable, healing, and accessible practices informed by Black literature, scholarship, and other channels of inherited knowledge across space and time.

We are continuing to work toward solidifying our foundation as an organization, including more context around our pillars and defining our pedagogy. We hope to engage our growing community in this effort, thus we’ve rolled out a Study Hall offering that will operate similar to a book club, focusing on texts that are meant to inform our foundation building.
