Here’s how we’re getting there
Strengthening the Community
By exploring black art, culture and political education, BOP members feel connected to their community, their history, and to themselves.
Developing a new generation of black leadership that will build a community of trust, love, and consciousness.
I got involved with BOP because being actively involved with the Black community is important to me. That is just how my father raised me; to never turn my back on our community.
I became a member of BOP because I was in need of a space to grow, be respected, and loved while working in the community. BOP is a family away from family. Every individual opinion and idea is valued.
I like all the events and outreach because I get to talk to new people and go out in the community. Being a BOP member has helped me talk to people and I’m not as nervous as I used to be.
