Deecolonize Academy

Deecolonize Academy is a multi-generational skool 4 the people, by the people.

As poor people of color in a society that was built off of us but not for us, we feel that it is essential to provide quality, relevant and realistic education to our Black, Brown, Indigenous & disabled youth in poverty, age 0-18, that will develop them into leaders, enhance their unique gifts, and uplift them to greatness to ultimately decolonize. This is a no-tuition school run by low income families. We teach relevant, conscious, arts- and science-based education, including subjects like: poverty journalism, math, reading, cooking, animal care, revolutionary art, and danza azteca. Our teachers are poverty skolaz, Deecolonize Academy graduates, Homefulness residents, POOR Magazine family, our ancestors and mama earth.
