WHO ARE WE?
WABSE was founded, in 1991, by six black administrators and educators in the New Rochelle School District. We are an affiliate of the National Alliance of Black School Educators and our mission reflects the force of our efforts to enhance and facilitate the achievement of excellence in education for our children and to challenge any obstruction to their accomplishment to that end. WABSE is the first NABSE official affiliate of Westchester County to implement the mission of NABSE and to convene black educators and others, directly or indirectly involved in the educational process, to discuss, strategize and implement solutions to the unique problems they and their students face.

Carter G. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH) in 1915 in Chicago, describing its mission as the scientific study of the "neglected aspects of Negro life and history."
Under Gov. Ron DeSantis’s “Stop WOKE” law — which would limit students and teachers from learning and talking about issues related to race and gender — Florida is at the forefront of a nationwide campaign to silence Black voices and erase the full and accurate history and contemporary experiences of Black people.
