Kuwa Kubwa:
Community School

Kuwa Kubwa is an alternative education collaborative for Black and Brown children. The school began as a two-hour per day education program and was one of Black Sovereign Nation's pilot initiatives. Now, Kuwa Kubwa exists as a full day program and year-round school serving grades Pre-K through 8th. 
 

Our community must cease to depend on institutions of white supremacy to educate our children. BSN works with students and their families to provides in home and cooperative education alternatives for Black and Brown students (free of charge). Our hope for Kuwa Kubwa is that it will grow alongside Black Sovereign Nation, fulfilling the needs of families who are ready to take steps toward Black autonomy by breaking the chains and liberat the hearts and minds of our children.
