What is Harlem Liberation School?
The United States' public and private school systems do not adequately prepare Black people to be leaders and problem-solvers for ourselves. If we want to learn the information and skills we need to be empowered, WE must provide it.
Harlem Liberation School was founded and is directed by Agyei Tyehimba. We are a Black community learning center providing political education, developing grassroots organizing/activism, and creating a space for informed political discussion in our neighborhoods.
We do not believe Black people should wait for one great Black leader to lead us. Our history shows us that ordinary Black people led liberation movements, not just those with college degrees, money, or fame. We believe that once our people understand how they are mistreated, and have the tools/information to address issues important to them, real change and empowerment will occur (Read an interesting essay concerning Liberation Schools).
