Unity is strength, division is weakness. ~ Swahili proverb

Why We Want You to Join our Community. The old Igbo and Yoruba African proverb that says, “It takes a village to raise a child” is a staple of the Black community. It means that an entire community of people must invest in our young people to help them to flourish in a safe and healthy environment. Villagers look out for and support our children. It is how we survive and thrive. The larger our community, the stronger our voice. Come join the fight to remove barriers for our students of color and provide more access and retention.

Members will receive:

  • Monthly updates that share our trials and triumphs
  • Invitations to participate in our celebrations and community events
  • Access to our community business list so we can support each other

"If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." ~ African proverb
