We are here to stay
“It’s time we leave a lasting mark in the Colorado Community. One that will be remembered for years to come. It starts here. It starts now.”
Brandon Bornes | Founder of My Black Colorado
We exists for the purpose to facilitate and cultivate a cohesive ecosystem of the local black community to inspire, innovate and connect local areas together.
Our Network and impact is expanding. Due to the increased costs of managing the My Black Colorado Network (Directory), our multimedia content (including our magazine Publications), and our events, we are asking you to partner with us by buying a print subription of our magazine at $10 a month.
Over 1200 listings and growing
A history of the various types of black businesses, creatives, churches, social and civic organizations in Colorado
We launched in February 2018 in Colorado Springs, CO. We have a dynamic and growing directory of Black Owned Business, Black Skilled Professionals, Black Creatives, Black Churches and Black Civic & Social Organizations. Our Event page is updated Daily with Black Events and promoters. Our blog highlights those who are exceptional in our community. Every part of our website can be updated and edited by our approved members. You get out what you put in. There is also power in numbers. By growing our subscribed membership we will gain greater influence and visibility in the larger community. Teamwork makes dreams work.
Why Our Directory Is Important
1 | Major directories do not distinguish between black and other businesses
2 | The cost of advertising in directories is far beyond the financial means of many
3 | None of the directories specifically lists church, organizations, and social groups in such a manner that black military and non-military people “new” to the area will be able to find groups to join
4 | There are no centralized areas where members of specific black groups live or have their businesses
5 | Others guides do not provide an immediate guide to black businesses for use of the city, county, state, and federal government agencies. These agencies are required to make attempts to assure that black business are aware of and encouraged to submit bids. This directory helps bridge the gap
