Kinships are the roots of the African and African American Community. Historically, our culture values family. So much so, even those that are not blood related, but close to us, we may regard as “Kin”.  We call each other cousin, brotha, bro, sista, sis, auntie, and “big momma” is everybody’s grandmother.

 

We must preserve our cultural heritage and ancestral traditions and pass this on to the next generations.  But the strength in this solidarity must be more than titles. We must SEE each other as family, CALL each other family, and most importantly TREAT each other like family.

 

About us:

We exist to support a thriving black community.

 

Our vision:

To live in a world where we all see each other as part of the same family and where all people live up to the fullest potential.

 

Our mission is to:

Support the path towards racial justice, economic justice, environmental justice in the black and African American community.

 

We do this by:

A call to action for black empowerment and self-sufficiency.

 

We want to provide a platform for information, to stimulate conversation and to spark action.
