"The preservation and the revival of what we now call Bronzeville, orginally known as the old Black Belt, is imperative.  Stabilizing Bronzeville will set an example (for)...communities regardless of race, creed or color or any status.  We have a responsibility to the larger African-American community to do that."   

~ Professor Timuel Black

We aspire to a Bronzeville that is a diverse, vibrant, intergenerational, mixed-income community that is locally owned and controlled and whose residents reflect the community's historic African-American heritage and share values and sense of history that allow the community to be sustained.

Bronzeville is a neighborhood located in the Douglas and Grand Boulevard community areas on the South Side of city of Chicago around the Illinois Institute of Technology and Illinois College of Optometry. It is accessible via the Green, Red Lines of the Chicago Transit Authority or the Metra Electric District Main Line

 

Is a coalition of community based institutions that believe more can be achieved working together than separately.

We understand that our community does not exist in a vacuum and some solutions can be found by studying similiar situations in communities across the globe.

For a productive and vibrant Bronzeville community and feel the most effective way to achieve such a community is through collective action on issues that impact the area as a whole.
