The Council of Independent Black Institutions (CIBI) was founded in 1972 and grew out of the 1960’s radical era of the Black Power Movement and social unrest against the injustices suffered by our people in this country. In the 1960s and 1970s, Black parents refused to allow their children to be educated in a system that didn't teach to their humanity, historical truth, or social reality. These parents formed independent Black institutions, often from basements, living rooms, and lawn chairs before acquiring buildings, later forming The Council of Independent Black Institutions. The African-Centered education movement has today spread to both public and charter schools, and CIBI and CIBI affiliated scholars have remained the vanguard of this movement.

People of African decent in American have historically suffered from a crisis of identity, miseducation, and an anti-socialization that leaves our people without the ability to institution-build and develop sovereignty for our own best interest. CIBI and other African-Centered independent/sovereign schools represent a success, and should be celebrated.
