The Black Leadership Kitchen Cabinet of Silicon Valley is comprised of community based organizations, agencies, businesses, sororities, fraternities, social groups, and individual community members who all work collaboratively to support, sustain, improve, the lives of the African/African Ancestry population within Santa Clara County.

The rich history has consistently affected significant changes to enhance the African American community’s health, education, business opportunities, promotional advancement and cultural diversity.


African African American
Health & Heritage
Ancestry Month

February 2024

The inception of the African/African Ancestry Health and Heritage Month (AAAHHM) in 2016 was a response to the Call to Action initiated by the African/African Ancestry Community, the Black Leadership Kitchen Cabinet and various stakeholders. The purpose of the Call to Action was to address long-standing racism that people of African/African Ancestry continue to experience within Santa Clara County. Much of this has been detailed and published in a Countywide African/African Ancestry Health Assessment Research Project in 2014.
