Jacky Alciné.

As a forewarning: The lives of those oppressed by the current power structure that exist today and have existed for centuries are the ones I curate my content on this site for primarily. The lives of all Black and Brown lives matter on this platform. They will always. Asè.

Jacky Alciné is a developer and educator.

Jacky is a software developer that focuses on the ease of access of user security on the Web as well as digital literacy for silicon based consumer networked electronics (or "tech"). My mission is to carry out the objective of my ancestors and elders: to focus on the liberation of my people and the restoration of the legacy of the descendants of the Afrikan Diaspora.
