About


 


What Is Your Mission?

Launched in 2017, We exists for the purpose to facilitate and cultivate a cohesive ecosystem of the local black community to inspire, innovate and connect local areas together.  Since the beginning, we have partnered with our local black communities to empower and highlight the work they are doing & to create systems to help sustain their impact and create a legacy. 



 
4 Reason Why My Black City Is Important


  1. We Create Our Own Media | Multimedia and marketing services are in high demand but the cost is beyond the financial means of many in our community
  2. We Create Our Own Narratives | We are a black owned organization that creates content for the black community by the black community.
  3. We Create Our Own Networks | Many cities around the country need help creating better networks within the local black community. So that the local black community can network and celebrate each other.
  4. We Are Family Friendly | All our initiatives are for the whole family.


A MESSAGE FROM BRANDON BORNES

Founder Of My Black City

We often worry that we don’t have enough resources in our community to go around. When we see someone in our community doing what we do but better, we get a little nervous or intimidated. Instead of using competition to spur on our creativity, teamwork, work ethic and innovation, we become soo overwhelmed with our own fears and insecurities that we gossip, sabotage, or hurt one another. This has happened to many exceptional people in our community. We need to do better and lead by example. Our love for each other needs to be greater than our fear of failure.

If we had to simplify into one word what My Black Colorado is about, it would be LOVE! Because Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

When people come in contact with our brand, that’s what I want them to experience. It‘s not an easy aspiration to live up to, but we believe it‘s worth fighting for and it‘s what we need as a community. i
