Honoring and celebrating
Black Deaf Communities through Equitable Education 

“If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

― Lilla Watson in collaboration with an Aboriginal Rights group in Queensland


 We are committed to working within and along side Black Deaf and hearing communities to address audism in our community, create culturally inclusive education, and seek opportunities for Black joy and thriving.  Join us on this journey to a more equitable and accessible world.


We are a 501c(3) educational Deaf and hearing Black collaborative nonprofit. We create educational materials, experiences, and trainings rooted in Black Deaf cultures in solidarity with other Communities of Color to build relationships, increase cultural understanding, promote respect, and create pathways to joy and liberation. 


We honor our mission by:

  • Creating and publishing Black, Indigenous, and Deaf People of Color (BIPOC) educational materials and curricula.

  • Creating and leading Deaf BIPOC-centric cultural trips throughout the United States and Abroad.

  • Developing and facilitating educational and equity-based workshops, trainings, and retreats. 


  • Hosting and facilitating restorative justice circles and workshops to promote individual and community healing. 

  • Collaborating with Deaf and hearing community organizations and initiatives.

Deaf people can do anything, except hear. I don’t let my deafness stop me from achieving my goals. I use it as a motivation to work harder and prove myself.
