BLACK EXCELLENCE

FIGHTING FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE AND EQUITY

Black History is American History, and should be celebrated every single day. TEN believes that all children deserve access to a high-quality education regardless of different racial, socioeconomic, or linguistic backgrounds. Currently, our education system is underserving students of color. This isn’t a coincidence, but a product of years of institutionalized and systematic racism.

To understand how we can all fight to end the opportunity gap, both in Denver and the US, we must understand how we got here in the first place. Learn about Denver’s past and remember the heroes who have fought for educational equity and excellence. Black excellence is all of our excellence.
