Brownicity launched in 2015 with the purpose of making important, scholarly-informed, antiracism education accessible. A former professor of education, founder and President Dr. Lucretia Berry designed curricula and other learning experiences to support beginners of all ages by partnering with individuals, churches, schools, and companies.
Needing to extend access beyond its Charlotte, NC area base, in September 2019, Brownicity launched their Learning Community, an online membership platform offering expert-led courses, workshops, and talks. To date (2020), the online platform has hosted over 10k enrollments.
Hope-holders for humanity, the Brownicity team remains dedicated to offering eye-opening education for those eager to learn.

“Celebrating our cultural identity — acknowledging God’s expressed self through our collective journey — is not only food for our souls, but feeds those who have never experienced the Divine expressed in this way.” — Lucretia Berry
