Minnesota’s Black Community Project
Minnesota’s Black Community Project [MBCP] is an initiative created and launched in 2016 in Minneapolis, Minnesota by its founding board members, Anthony Scott, Dr. Charles Crutchfield III, Dr. Chaunda Scott, George Scott, Christopher Crutchfield and Anthony Scott II to fill a glaring void in African American programming in Minnesota.
The goals of MBCP programs are as follows:
1) To applaud, highlight and celebrate the historical and contemporary accomplishments and contributions of African American Minnesotan’s through community programs 3 -5 times a year. These community programs may take place in the form of community lectures, panel discussions, musical concerts, theatrical and dance performances and art exhibits.
2) To encourage African American children, youth and adults in Minnesota to succeed academically and professionally so that their accomplishments and contributions can be chronicled as a part of Minnesota’s rich African American history.
3) To inform Minnesota’s African American community and the Minnesota community at large in person and through social media about upcoming historical and contemporary publications and community programs that are sponsored by MBCP.
4) To provide in person opportunities for community building and networking among African Americans in Minnesota and the Minnesota community at large.
