My name is Khye Tyson, and I'm a little bit of everything. My heart beats for my community at the root of everything I do.
First and foremost, I work as a reproductive justice “auntie”–community builder, doula, and healer. I am an educator with 10 years of experience working with people of all ages, literally from birth to adulthood.
I also pride myself on being a thought leader and provocateur. Reproductive justice means that we need to ask the hard questions to understand the problem we are facing and how to eradicate it. For Black folx, that means we need to accurately name the genocide happening against us in the United States, specifically centering the experiences of those descended from trafficked and enslaved Africans.
These are not easy conversations to have, and I am dedicated to bringing this conversation to the forefront in the Black community alongside healing-centered community care. My goal for us is true sovereignty, and in order to attain it, we must understand the forces against us.
I ground my work in community, unapologetic Blackness, wholeness, and ancestral reverence. Everything I do is to help us get more free.
In addition to the topics above, I frequently discuss sexual and gender identity, consent, cultural norms and socialization, intersectional theory, self-care, herbs and crystals, and hoodoo.
All this informs my work with each and every client I work with.
Kuluntu (koo-loon-too) means community
Hey! I'm glad you're here.
In 2018, I founded Kuluntu Reproductive Justice Center to serve as a bridge between reproductive health and reproductive justice so that Black people can build the families they desire without being subject to harm, trauma, and death.
Directly combating the maternal mortality crisis, Kuluntu Reproductive Justice Center provides healing products, birthwork services, and community building for families and those who work with them.
Since 2018, we have prided ourselves on helping families build healthy communities, helping birthworkers hone their craft and reach more families, and helping birth-related care providers support patients with culturally competent care in order to reduce exposure to harm.
