The Story

Help create safer spaces for Black people that are 100% positively Black! 

YesBlackPeople.com is meant to be a beacon in the light for Black people far from home, for Black people like myself who found their path home, and for all Black people interested in uplifting Black communities. It’s a space for Black people, designed by Black people, and funded by those who love us. Read my founder’s statement on my blog, thefayth.net.

This year and next, we’re teaming up with Black Heroes Matter, an existing collaboration of Black comic creators, artists, and writers. According to its founder, Brother Uraeus, “BHM represents a paradigm shift; a change in the prevailing philosophy that governs pop culture...an SOS call to creators of color, urging them to bring to life positive, well-balanced heroes that reflect our best selves to the nation, the world-at-large, and most importantly, to our children –– without any apology.” YesBlackPeople.com plans to share our message at Black events across the country in the hopes of creating a revolutionary space online where Black people can find safety, healing, resources, and support from one another.

To that end, I’m asking for your help to get the YesBlackPeople.com team to New York Comic Con this coming weekend, where we will join the Black HeroesMatter panel discussion and host a #Blackathon with local Black developers, artists and copywriters. (Details follow).

YesBlackPeople.com #Blackathon

Brooklyn, NY – October 8th, 2017
A hackathon that’s creating safer space for Black people, online and off, built by Black people, for Black people. See existing site here. We’ll add final touches, build out our public facing news section, connect our BuddyBoss press install to a custom child theme, get rid of lorem ipsum with Black crafted messages of peace, love and liberation and add new listings for NY state with help from Black researchers, developers, writers and designers. Funding will support rental of a Black owned co-operative tech space, food and water, small honorariums for 4 Black technologists, writers and editors, travel and housing for hackathon organizers and participants.
