For Academic and Cultural Excellence
A Black Education Network (ABEN) assists our children and youth in reaching their full potential by facilitating academic and cultural excellence wherever they are, using culturally informed research and providing teacher training/professional development workshops, technology, visionary parent education, and networking in our communities here and in diaspora contexts.
ABEN provides independent efforts in Black communities that are systematic and ongoing, including community-sponsored in-and out-of-school educational activities that provide a safe haven for family engagement, facilitate teaching/learning about the cultural contributions of neighborhoods and community leaders where schools reside, and to help eliminate family trauma.
