We are Canada's leading Afrocentric Nonprofit Organization dedicated to promoting Knowledge Of Self through a culture of learning and reading.


We believe that when a young mind comes across literature that inspires and encourages the journey of self-discovery, there is a spark ignited which when guided and nurtured, brings about a positive reform within Our Community. 


We are committed to igniting that flame.

By ensuring sufficient access to books, mentors, support and engagement opportunities, and by creating safe enabling spaces, we challenge the popular narrative and forge an exemplary, more representational one.
