Since our inception in 2013, our goal has been to refute stereotypes through positive imagery that not only challenges the negative narratives but also highlights our accomplishments and our limitless possibilities.

In addition to our ancestors and icons, we have found countless realtime examples of individuals throughout our community who are building on their legacy. These are the stories we are working to promote as we build a platform that is 100% positive, uplifting and real.

What better way to kick off this expansion than with 15 inspiring stories we collected from graduates who are working to create a #newblackstereotype.

“Two years into college, my big sister put her dreams on hold and dropped out of school so that she could get her homeless 16 year old little brother off the road to destruction. 7 years later, and A LOT of bumps in the road, I am a changed man and a college graduate. For me to be able to share this moment with her meant the world to me. We shared the same struggle as children and she was still selfless enough to put me before herself. In the midst of everybody trying to take pictures with me after graduation, I just wanted to find my sister. When I found her, we hugged and both started crying. She told me she was proud of me and I told her I wouldn't have made it this far without her."
