The Black Knowledge Society (TBKS) is a resource hub comprising:
Our primary ambition is to signpost the global Black community to existing, credible resources that seek to unite us and inspire transformative action.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, we hold fast to our core values, by elevating the great works of the myriad enlightened leaders, scholars, activists, and great minds from within our global community. We celebrate and honour both acclaimed and lesser-known names in a coherent, digestible form, accessible to even the "newly woke”.
We believe unity through education is the fundamental building block, through which all other forms of social, economic and political prosperity are derived.
Our freedom lies in embracing our true selves: the accomplished, brilliant and resourceful people we were pre-slavery – and still are!
Equally critical is that we do not make this effort to build ourselves up at the expense of another group's downfall. Our efforts are not motivated by hate of the 'other'; instead, born out of love for self; hence our strapline, know thyself, love thyself. When motivated by love and passion we can do a wealth of transformative good.
As a member of the global Black community, you are already a stakeholder in TBKS. What that means is that we expect you to hold us to account, contribute and actively build with us; consider our success, your success.
A warm welcome.
