African American Resource Guide

Members of the 2013 African American Leadership Academy (AALA) developed the Connecting Black Portland Campaign to improve the connectivity and sense of unity among Portland’s African American community. Gentrification and other inequities have made it increasingly difficult for African Americans to connect to one another as we lack a geographic center.

This African American Resource Guide and Community Calendar is a direct result of their efforts to improve our community’s unity. Since we are geographically dispersed, it can be difficult to find African American businesses and community resources. This guide serves as an online portal for locating various resources in our community.

As part of the launch of the Resource Guide, the 2013 Cohort also launched a community contest to develop a logo for the guide that would unify the community around the central theme of black love and black pride and would represent the present, past and future story of Portland’s Black community. The winning image is included above.
