ConnectBlackLA was birthed out of the Covid-19 pandemic and the 2020 Protests after the death of George Floyd , an African-American man, died in Powderhorn, a neighborhood south of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States.

ConnectBlackLA is a Community Resource Space for Black Americans in Los Angeles County to share information and resources in their VOICE that would help others in our everyday lives.

ConnectBlackLA is a portal to create vital, informative and inspiring conversations through forums YOU create.

ConnectBlackLA's mission is to support our Black Communities in all walks of life and to provide a vehicle to connect with local, regional and national black businesses, share information, resources and programs and opportunities available along with a platform for us to discuss vital topics that affect us individually and as a collective voice in one community space.
