The Black Leadership Kitchen Cabinet (BLKC) was created in 2005 by concerned community leaders as a means to address the broader social ills that are currently impacting their African American Community. Throughout the years, the BLKC has worked with partners to bring forth a number of initiatives, programs, services, and policies to help improve the lives of the African/African Ancestry community.
BLKC works collaboratively with members of the African/African Ancestry community from all over the county. We work with local and county governments, school districts to ensure that residents of our community are valued, our cultural heritage is respected, and to ensure that Black lives are always considered. All BLKC monthly meetings and planning team meetings are open to all community members and we use a shared and informed decision making process to outline our goals and strategies.
A demographic study of this county’s African American community has been under way since January 2013. Information derived form this study will be used to develope policies and procesedures to more effectively serve our community.
The areas to be studied are:
health, educations, criminal justice, social and economics.
