History

Founded in 2014, the Fellowship was born out of a desire to inspire new generations of Black men to work for social justice through teaching. Since then, The Fellowship has grown to include an ever-expanding network of more than 2,000 members who serve as teachers, administrators, legislators, clergy members and business leaders in Greater Philadelphia. Our leadership team is comprised of seasoned Black male educators, including school principals, deans and teachers.

This team has already proven its capability to grow the organization while delivering well-regarded programming. In the 2015-16 school year, The Fellowship hosted four Black male educators’ convenings in Greater Philadelphia (each increasingly well-attended) and provided surveys to over 500 Black men professionals on the state of Black male educators in Philadelphia public schools.
