Black Family Homeschool Educators and Scholars (BFHES), LLC was started in April 2020 by Black homeschool researchers Dr. Khadijah Ali-Coleman and Dr. Cheryl Fields-Smith. BFHES is a pioneering educational research group that integrates research and community practice through the publication of scholarly work and engagement of homeschool practitioners.

In summer 2020, we implemented the inaugural BFHES Virtual Teach-In, featuring over 20 speakers and attracting over 200 participants for a seven day event. In tandem with our event, we coordinated a call for submissions for our forthcoming book, Homeschooling Black Children in the US: Theory, Practice & Popular Culture. We selected over 12 authors who will contribute a compelling chapter for this publication which will be released in 2021. In September 2020, the BFHES co-founders became the editorial team managing the Information Age Publishing series, Contemporary Perspectives on Black Homeschooling. Our book, Homeschooling Black Children in the US: Theory, Practice & Popular Culture, will be the first book published in the series.

BFHES continues to engage with our community through monthly “tea talks” and maintaining a burgeoning community of homeschool educators via Facebook. As of this writing, the group has surpassed 1100 members since its start in July 2020. Our mission is to provide ongoing community engagement regarding black homeschooling through (1) the publication of scholarly and trade work on the topic, and (2) the production of community events targeting black homeschool familites and entrepreneurs engaged in the practice of black homeschooling.

BFHES is the first US-based research and education group dedicated specifically to the topic of black family homeschooling.
