EOTO’s vision is to empower black people on the grounds of community building and fostering black leadership in every realm of society – culture, education, economy, and politics. Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V. started out as a community-based project for education and the empowerment of black people in Berlin. Since becoming one of the core organizations of the governmental initiative Demokratie leben! (Live Democracy!), EOTO is growing into an organization that reaches out to communities throughout Germany and the international realm of the African diaspora. EOTO was founded in 2012, and in March 2014 its local reference library opened its doors to the public. Today it presents roughly six thousand works of people of African descent. Each One Teach One wants to make African diasporic cultural wealth accessible to black youth, cultural producers, and scholars.
