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.
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.
