Black Diaries provides a space for people of color to share their personal narratives for the purpose of community building. This is accomplished through: social media commentaries, town hall meetings and community organizing projects.
Our vision is to be a trailblazer in social change, creating a society where people of color will experience justice and equality.
We are a 501(c)(3) organization based in New York City.
The principal objectives of Black Diaries shall be:
• To create or enhance community among individuals of color nationally and internationally.
• To focus on community empowerment for the purpose of enabling more people of color, specifically in low-income environments, to play an active role in the decisions that affect their neighborhoods.
• To inform the public of the negative consequences of racial discrimination and systemic oppression, while challenging racial stereotypes.
• To ensure the social equality of all citizens and eliminate race prejudice.
