The Africa Academy/ Black Adult Education Center (SVHS)

The Africa Academy/ Black Adult Education Center (SVHS) is the continuation and extension of what has begun as “African Quarter – Space of Learning and Remembrance“ (LEO)

The United Nations have proclaimed an international decade for people of African descent (2015 –2024) and the SVHS has decided to contribute locally and to permanently address the topic of decolonization under incorporation of the Black community.

“If you do something for me, without me, you’re against me.“ Anta Diop

Within the scope of this institutional opening, we established a Black Adult Education Center at the Adult Education Center Berlin Mitte. It is an independent “department by Black people for Black people“, whereat the program is defined by Black experts and participants following the content matter decided by themselves.

The Africa Academy/ Black Adult Education Center (SVHS) consists of four pillars:

– Afro-Samstagschule (Afro Saturday School)
– Black Youth for Empowerment and Leadership
– African Women on the Winning Side
– Parenting in the Diaspora

Additionally the SVHS regularly organizes public events.
