Black History Month is over but our future is still ahead of us.
The popular book “The Secret” tells us to focus on what we want to attract not what we don’t. A lot of times we talk about what our community was before and what isn’t today so let’s time to talk about what we want!
Come and share what your BEST vision for the future of Black/African Diaspora community.
What would you see walking through a neighborhood of Black/African Descent people who are present as their BEST selves? If folks can envision a colony on Mars surely we can surely imagine a healthy community here on earth.
Join us for critical discussion, good food, collective visioning, planning and networking about the future of the Black/African diaspora community in Seattle’s Central District and beyond.
