MISSION: Guided by our commitment to self-empowerment, the mission of AAERO is to improve access of African Americans to education and information about teaching and learning.

VISION: AAERO envisions a nation in which all Americans have equal access to lifelong learning opportunities that enable them to make enlightened choices in the interest of their own quality of life, with respect for the interdependence of the community, the larger society and the world.

Join Us

We host an annual symposium to review the year’s accomplishments, gather with the African American community of Durham and Fayetteville (North Carolina), have an HBCU past and present intern reunion, and host a Board retreat. Find out about the next symposium and join us!

Founded by an African American family, Melchor-Quick Meeting House welcomes people who seek places to talk and share information and ideas that contribute to the quality of life in our community.  We welcome individuals and groups to consider renting the House for small family events, classes, workshops or meetings of civic and community organizations.  Music lessons, tutoring, study sessions, and sharing of local history and culture are especially encouraged.  We aim to be a place for educational enrichment and community building. Read about our history and ongoing activities to decide if this would be a good place for your event.
