The Black community historically came together to garner the impotence of intergenerational social development and mobility through collaborative efforts.
The communities were designed to care for every member. The young, elderly, sick, those in need of mental health support and the physically or developmentally disabled were nurtured and cared for in communities with the capacity to minimize risk and increase resilience.
Black communities were able to connect their realities given the lack of respect and access to prosperity in segregated and discriminatory institutional and structural systems. Community connection reduced racial isolation and social dislocation.
Black communities were focused on holding significance and human value for present and future generations through communication. Families and individuals entered into these communities to increase dialogue, promise and positive outcome for everyone.
The Black communities created a capacity for celebrating the cultural history and linguistic diversity among them. Communities celebrated their culture through food, music, art, literature and spirituality.
The consolidation of families and resources provided opportunites for Black communities to identify and utilize an accumulation of gifts, skills and assets. The consolidated communities were full of hospitality, inspiration and compassion. They nurtured friendships and strengthened relationships.
