Sometimes, it is hard to know where you fit in. Your family wants you to be more African. Your friends want you to be more American. But does that mean Black-American, White-American, or something else? You just want to be yourself. With us, you can be.
Join our free coaching group for Black Immigrant Youth. We meet online in small groups to talk about race and racism in the United States. We have a professional facilitator to make sure it is a safe space where everyone is heard and respected.
