Our goal is to provide a secure and break down the cultural and racial ignorance society has placed on people of Kolor by teaching Afrocentrism.
We are here to make a stand, not only for ourselves but to others who may be afraid to do so. We spread the knowledge within our reach and seek the unknown in which we can teach. We are WOKE since birth like a flower to the earth. Our pedals do not fall, never hitting dirt. Beautiful like our skin and our history, we may come in different shades and have lived through different pains, but we will all leave a legacy.
