A New Future for Black America

There are challenges in the Black community.

Challenges created centuries ago with the enslavement, segregation, and disenfranchisement of Black men and women in every facet of American society. And those effects are still felt today, most notably, in Black youth.

 

In Los Angeles County, where median household income for Black adults is only $40,650—roughly $15,000 less than the county’s average, 20% of LA-county African-American families live in poverty, and 60% of those households are only supported by single mothers, these challenges can seem near-insurmountable in the face of ongoing discrimination.

 

But they aren’t.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

For the past 17 years, CBMLA has worked with at-risk Black youth to provide academic support, career enrichment, and positive Black role models in the Los Angeles County area.

At CBMLA, we believe the future of Black America rests in its youth. A future where experienced Black men and women reach back to provide wisdom, mentorship, and a helping hand to the next generation so they can rise to a higher position than the generation before them.

Adding Momentum to the Movement

One of the greatest challenges when it comes to addressing issues in the Black community is time. Change takes time. It’s taken more than 400 years to reach where we are today. So, it’ll take a little longer to push us farther than that. At CBMLA, our eyes are set on generational swings—because that’s what it’ll take. It’s the act of pushing our youth just a little farther than the generation before them. And that requires commitment, active investment, and time. 

If you’d like to be a part of that mission and help fuel the academic and professional prosperity of the next generation of Black youth, we welcome anything you’re willing to give.

If you’d like to help empower the future of Black youth, we welcome anything you’re willing to give. 

Thanks for joining the movement.
