Learn a little more about Black Business Diary and how we started

Our journey began with the fundamental belief that Black and marginalized communities should have access to resources and opportunities for progress. On May 5, 2018, a collective of community members convened to explore the creation of a more diverse and interconnected community, specifically addressing the needs of Black and marginalized business owners.

During our discussions, a key focal point emerged regarding the concern for the youth. We deliberated on how our organization could contribute to establishing a generational legacy of education, empowerment, and unity. This legacy aims to instill pride in identity, culture, and history for people of African descent. Recognizing the importance of rootedness and belonging, we emphasized the need for a solid understanding of the past as a foundation for stepping boldly into the future.

It became evident that achieving growth and sustainability required the establishment of a platform built on strength, partnerships, and intercultural understanding. Thus, the birth of Black Business Diary!
