We exist to transform the school experience for Black and Brown children by creating culturally sustaining policies, structured programming, and teacher pedagogy that develops students into change agents for their community.

How We Do It

BMEA’s Liberated Learners Framework is the foundation from which the organization’s professional development sessions are built. Uniquely designed by BMEA’s executive leadership, this foundational structure of concepts and strategies is intellectually stimulating and creates school environments that foster a spirit of liberation and honor Black excellence.
