Social media is powerful tool that allows us to connect with people so easily and conveniently. And for Black or African American homeschoolers, it is also a wonderful resource.
Homeschooling can be overwhelming at times. Many families are using Facebook to connect with other homeschooling families, share information and advice, build friendships, and access resources helpful to their child's education. Researching in black homeschooling Facebook groups is a great way to ease the stress of homeschooling as a black homeschooler.
There are hundreds of groups on Facebook catering to various needs, such as religious, racial, unschooling, among many others. We have compiled a list of homeschooling Facebook groups where black families can easily access resources and find encouragement and support as they go through their homeschooling journey.
Kindly note that we do not endorse any of these groups, and some groups may require you to join first. It is up to you to choose what group best fits you and your child(ren).
