It all started when...
We realized that there wasn't a safe place for the Black Community to safely celebrate, live and indulge in what it means to be Black - more specifically what it means to be black in America. It's hard for us to love ourselves and be loud about it without being told that we're "doing too much" "being aggressive" or our personal favorite "acting like a N%##$; Black people are too Loud!"
That's not who we are. As a group with arguably the most unique experience in modern history - our narrative has been taken from and in many cases SOLD BACK TO US in the form of culture reappropriation fashion, music, etc. No group of people should feel like being themselves is a crime - an aberration of culture - an uncouth manifestation of what used to be 'wrong with America'. So much of our culture is synonymous with pain, misfortune and darkness. We are endeavoring to change that narrative - especially since it wasn't we gave to ourselves.
With your contribution, we would be sustaining the opportunity for the Black Community to love itself once again. Your support would ignite the spark of unity that our community has be so desperately try fan into the larger flame of progress and equality.
