Six Square - Austin's Black Cultural District

With more than a 20-year career in operations, program management and consulting in the nonprofit sector, I’ve worked primarily with community based organizations to cultivate, preserve and promote African American culture.

As a student of African American studies, I understand the vital importance of building institutions that value and celebrate the African American aesthetic. By building a foundation for sustained success, we provide future generations a connection to their rich cultural heritage that will be more than a source of pride and inspiration, but also important road maps helping them navigate this most challenging journey of life. Cultural competency must remain relevant to these journeys.
