The Black Teacher Project recruits, develops and sustains Black teachers for schools in the United States. Our goal is to create an effective teaching force that reflects the diversity of Black people in this country. Our premise is that Black educators offer indispensable insights into the lived realities of navigating schooling institutions, as well as into the social structures of the United States. Therefore, every young person, regardless of racial or ethnic identity, can benefit from the influence of highly effective Black teachers in their life. Our vision is that all children will have access to a well-trained, well-supported, Black teaching force.
