The Big Brown Get Down (BBGD) is a community initiative designed to connect upwardly mobile people of color with youth in our most underserved, overlooked, and vulnerable neighborhoods. The primary objective of the Get Down is twofold: First, we aim to help students shape their lives after high school by connecting them with people who have been in their shoes and transcended their circumstances. Second, we aim to affirm cultural identity and heritage of students in urban areas. The BBGD will be held at the Malcolm X Opportunity Center (MXOC) on Alabama Ave SE. Please donate here.
