BLOC UNIVERSITY PROGRAM
Program Lead and Instructor – Vincia Rountree
BLOC University is the foundational program among the pillars of BLOC.
BLOC University is an introductory program for members of the Freedom BLOC.
This is a vehicle to build containers and cohorts for continuity and continuous, democratic learning.
The program is designed as the foundational and core learnings to becoming an active member with The Freedom BLOC and in black communities throughout Ohio. Education is central to all freedom movements, so in that spirit and legacy, this program is just another manifestation of past and current black liberation struggles.
Popular and direct education are the methodology of teaching and learning.
