Why We Exist
Black men and women have suffered from the weapons of white supremacy more than any other racial group on Earth. We represent the highest casualty rates from preventable physical illnesses like AIDS, diabetes, and cancer. We are three times more likely to be poor, 5 times more likely to have abortions, and 21 times more likely to be shot and killed by police than whites. 1 in 3 of our men will endure the horrors of prison.
United Black America stands on the front line against the weapons of white supremacy. Our project teams turn Black consumers into producers by creating Black enterprises and financial literacy programs. We disrupt mis-education within our communities with work study groups and curricula for developing knowledge of self. We aggressively fight for prison reform and community oversight committees to regulate law enforcement. Using lobbyists, political participation drives, and voter blocs, we advance the demands of our people as a unified political body.
In Fiscal Year 2015, more than 125 Certified Members have joined our ranks.
United Black America members have created dozens of project teams to address the most serious issues facing our people.
United Black America is organized into of 12 Councils that manage activities across multiple areas of focus.

This study course was one of it is kind. This course allowed me to expand my consciousness and exercise a new way of thinking. This is foundational lesson that walk you through the the door of an African liberation!
The works study courses are extremely necessary. Where else can you find 8 weeks of intensive education on the empowerment of our people on a multitude of topics? The importance of these lessons are unprecedented and will take your understanding of our power and purpose as Black people to a whole new level.
The United Black America work study course is definitely life changing. The biggest challenge that you face while taking the course is yourself. While taking the work study course, I gained a true working knowledge of self [and] I learned more about myself and my people in 8 weeks of class than I did in 17 years. Take. The. Course.
