“Amateka” means histories in Kinyarwanda, 

an official language of Rwanda in East Africa.

We implement African-centered education 

in schools and organizations to celebrate the world's Black communities 

We offer a college-preparatory education 

for multiracial, multicultural high school students in Washington, D.C., recognizing the many cultural histories of the world.

Our community inspires multiracial, multicultural students 

to discover the many histories of the global Black experience 

we don't often get to learn about elsewhere. 

With this knowledge, we learn how to lead and serve in a racially just world. 

We choose career pathways where we can create change 

and develop our skill sets to ensure that we are prepared for life, college and career. 

We work together, learning from different perspectives, 

because we know that it will take all of us to create a world 

where each person can be valued and included.

 We learn from and celebrate the contributions of global Black communities 

to achieve a world where Black peoples are also valued, and included.
