Future technology concept with technology light background

51% of Black adults in the U.S. have heard 'nothing at all' about ChatGPT*, an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot that generates human-like text and is transforming the way we work, play, and live.


We're “changing the stats” and helping people in diverse communities to develop AI literacy by providing learning resources for awareness and education.

Most AI literacy projects focus on teaching technical aspects of AI systems to K-12 students. Consequently, there are a lack of AI resources designed for higher education students, adult populations, and the general public. There is also a need for materials that address ethical, legal and social implications of automated decision-making systems. For communities to thrive in a tech-driven society, it is essential all citizens develop critical AI and data literacies.

Black Unicorn Educationᵀᴹ is a tech education company dedicated to providing learning about AI and other technologies for the general public. We achieve this through our exceptional learning programs, products, and community-based events.

At Black Unicorn Education we help educate traditionally overlooked communities through context-based content, connections to resources, and community-driven learning. We are working to ensure ALL members of communities achieve AI literacy.

We make tech make sense.

Our goal is to “make tech make sense” for everyone--by any CREATIVE means necessary! We use informal and community-based approaches to facilitate learning in communities including virtual and in-person events, social media, challenges, workshops, meetups, games (digital & tabletop), newsletters, conversations & even comedy shows! We deploy non-traditional methods to help people learn about AI and other technologies in an accessible manner so they can make informed decisions about their everyday lives.

Frequently asked

questions

WHY FOCUS ON INFORMAL LEARNING?

Informal learning, learning that takes place outside of formal educational settings, can spark an interest in tech that wouldn't have been sparked in any other way. Research shows through informal learning, there's less resistance to learning something new and the learning that takes place is more immediate compared to longer timelines of traditional learning to grasp a concept. In a nutshell, with informal learning the process of learning is easier AND less boring!


Black Unicorn Educationᵀᴹ brings freedom to learning about AI and other technologies by removing restrictions of traditional curriculum-based approaches.

WHY BLACK UNICORN?

Black Unicorn is a call-out to the rarity of Black people in tech, especially Black women. In mythology, unicorns were originally depicted as black. We're changing things so Black Unicorns are normalized again. We've taken the same perspective on tech education. We're expanding what it means to learn tech. We're normalizing other ways of learning tech besides bootcamps and certifications. Our company had its beginnings on Tik Tok and Facebook where our educational content received tens of thousands of views. Today we've expanded to provide unique programs and events including AI Office Hours in partnership with a local entrepreneurship center for small business owners, an AI summer camp for underserved middle school students, virtual and in-person workshops, an online tech news series, and our AI Education Comedy Show-- Lecture of Laughter, an interactive educational experience to introduce AI to curious individuals!


Black Unicorn's programs, products, and community-based events are designed to educate, equip, and invest in diverse communities, to help them thrive in an AI-driven society. Our goal is to help individuals build the 'Tech ABCs: Awareness, Basic Knowledge & Skills, and Critical Perspectives about technology. We hope to activate individuals to apply their knowledge and understanding of tech to solve problems in their businesses, communities, and for the public good.
