Black Americans
Engaged with Asia

The only community of Black Americans with expertise

A Seat at the Table

The Problem

Black Americans are often not at the table during major, Asia-related decision-making in the public and private sector, leaving a gaping hole in America's engagement with Asia.

Our Solution

Encourage and work with institutions to increase the representation of Black Americans in the U.S.-Asia space and uplift Black voices in U.S.-Asia discourse.

A Community of Shared Interest in Asia

The Problem

Members of the Black community who pursue careers related to Asia don't see others like them in the public sphere and as a result often feel disconnected from each other.

Our Solution

Connect Black, Asia-specialists from varying industries and empower Black youth to pursue careers related to Asia.
