Greetings,

I am Nikala Asante, a homeschooling mom, writer, artist, and educator.  Outside of teaching my own son, I hold classes in my community (French, Art, and Africana Studies currently) and Creative Writing Workshops around the state of Texas.

As a writer, I have published two books which you can find out more about at nikalaasante.com.

As an educator, I find that it is very important to have culturally relevant curriculum in all subjects.  While learning French, students can read the poetry of Aime Cesaire.  During Science, they can learn about the many inventions of George Washington Carver.  In Math, they can study the “Pythagorean” Theorem in terms of the pyramids.  Put simply, African people have made significant contributions in all disciplines and should not be limited to a handful of trivia questions during “Black History Month”.  Black Homeschool Mom is my attempt to provide a wide array diverse resources for educators.

Please enjoy the website.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me using the form below.

All Best,

Nikala Asante

  1. Hello Sister Asante,

    First, I want to say how much I enjoyed your blog. As a new blogger myself, I can tell you put alot of time and effort into your blog. I can appreciation your vision and you have done a wonderful job of creating a much needed resource for our homeschooling community. Your blog was an inspiration for my blog. I would like to know if you are aware if there is a link-up community of african american bloggers. Im not totally sure how this works but I see other bloggers doing this with great success to direct traffic to each other’s blogs. I would like to generate traffic for my blog and I see this as a possible way of connecting with other bloggers and sharing resources. I would love for you to be a guest blogger on my blog soon if time permits. You can view my blog at africancenteredhomeschool.blogspot.com. Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing. Your labor has not been in vain.

  2. Hi Nikala Asante. I am soo glad I found you website. I frequently think about homeschooling for future children because I feel it will be more nurturing for them and more rewarding for myself as a parent. I came across the Kamali Academy on a fb post and I liked that and I like how you use part of it to incorporate with African-American History. I was a little concerned because while I will want my children to know their history they will also be bi-racial and I don’t want to feel like I am trying to erase half of who they are. Well Basically I am just glad I found your blog. It brought some perspective that I can also include to my best knowledge history for Mexican-Americans also. My husband doesn’t know much about his culture and doesn’t really have family to ask about it but I have always wanted a way to make sure my children know their backgrounds and I look forward to reading more on your blog and helping to get the confidence I need to first learn for myself and then teach my children. I have just started learning Spanish so I can teach my children. So yeah I just wanted to thank you for your inspiration and the hard work you do on this blog.
