This event is to empower and encourage parents and families of children of African Caribbean descent, to take control over their children’s education, mind and life, by either fully homeschooling them or doing more with their children around their schooling, so that our children’s cultural educational, mental and emotional needs are catered for, because our children’s education has never been the responsibility of the school system, it’s always been ours.
