Hey! So Glad You're Here. Welcome to scholOURship!

Retelling our stories one syllabus at a time.

We translate the knowledge and research of individuals producing content on their own communities into curriculum supplements that bridge gaps in what youth and adults have learned about systematically excluded communities.

Our Vision

We envision a world where every learner is able to learn about their communities, where education can be a reality for all people, and where being educated isn't limited by where one comes.

 

We envision a world where knowledge is not locked away in ivory towers, where history is not gate kept by who has the ability and legitimacy to produce knowledge, and where the truth is accessible to all.

We envision a world where scholOURship syllabi are in schools across the globe and continuously developed until our stories are properly told.

Our Mission

Much like academia, education curriculum also suffers from inaccurate depictions of historical, cultural, political, and social realities that censure and censor truth, all the while perpetuating false narratives in the same way Critical Race Theory is being suppressed in communities across the United States, for example. How then might our understandings of histories be transformed if Black and Indigenous communities curate their narratives?

 

Thus, scholOURship further aims to translate the knowledge and histories published on this platform into curriculum supplements that bridge gaps in what youth and adults have learned. As Judy Iseke writes, “Storytelling is a tried and true pedagogic practice that reflects the epistemologies of Indigenous communities. It may well challenge the very notions of what we think good teaching is and what educational processes we might consider in our educational environments.”
