THE FOUNDER & CEO
More Thank Talk
I'm a person who believes we can't simply complain about a problem, we have to "work" and put some action into finding a result. Don't just talk about what's wrong. Let's fix it.
Changing The Narrative
I get very frustrated with people who say Black people don't work together or we don't help each other. That's simply not true. Our social media pages are full of positive stories of famous and infamous Black people who help Black people. We're PROOF that Black America Cares.
Red, Black & Green
These colors represent the Pan-African flag, which came from Marcus Garvey. Red symbolizes the blood that's been shed. Black symbolizes our blackness...our color and green symbolizes the land and past, present and future prosperity. The people in the logo are red, black and green and are each supporting/hugging each other.
I started this organization for a couple of reasons. First, because I've never forgetten when I was struggling and there was NO place I could go for help. I worked and didn't qualify for financial assistance. I decided to become the help I couldn't find. Secondly because I was attending a church and was giving literally thousands of dollars but I saw no evidence of how that money was impacting the community. Instead of complaining I decided I'd do it myself. I'm going to be a part of the change I want to see in our communities. People ask, "can white people be a part of this?" Sure, as long as they understand this is OUR space and we run things in a way that best suits and benefits "us".
