To facilitate and cultivate a cohesive ecosystem of the local black community to inspire, innovate and connect local areas together.
MOTIVATED BY LOVE
We often worry that we don’t have enough resources in our community to go around. When we see someone in our society that does what we do but does it better than us, many times we get a little nervous. Instead of using competition to spur on our creativity, teamwork, work ethic and innovation, we often are soo overwhelmed with our fears and insecurities that we lash out. We gossip, we sabotage, we hurt one another. This has happened to many exceptional people in our community. We need to do better. But we need to lead by example. Our love for each other needs to be greater than our fear of failure.
If I had to simplify into one word what My Black Colorado is about, it would be LOVE! Because Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, and it does not boast, it is not proud, It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
When people come in contact with our brand, that’s what I want them to experience. It’s not an easy aspiration to live up to, but I believe it’s worth fighting for and it’s what we need as a community.
