This article presents reflections on the work of a group of education leaders in Oklahoma City, OK, who have committed to transforming a traditional school into an African-centered institution in order to meet the culturo-educational needs of the children within the community. This work charts their efforts toward creating an African-centered school by using transformative education methods and African-centered theories. The article highlights the critical transformative work that teachers and administrators must do if they intend to change the dismal educational realities being faced by Black children.
