Queen Nzinga Saturday School Club launched in October 2020 in the middle of the current coronavirus pandemic. With an already widening attainment gap (which we now tend to refer to as education debt, as coined by pedagogical theorist and teacher educator Gloria Ladson-Billings), we wanted to make sure that the pandemic didn’t worsen our children’s chances of achieving their potential. We wanted to use the time, when learning seemed to slow down, to strive even more to give our students the best opportunities to reconnect with their history and culture, to embrace the values we believe are crucial to addressing the inequalities that exist in today’s society and to continue a tradition of academic excellence.
