Carbon is a digital platform for the black community offering content focusing on well-being, emotional health, resilience and life strategies, aiming to build personal power in the black community. Carbon offers therapeutic and life enhancing content reflective of the black experience.
Carbon, the sixth element and the Latin word for charcoal is a key component of all known life on earth, which represents the black community’s ubiquitous and pervasive influence on world culture. It is also one of the most versatile elements, representing the community’s unique and multifaceted ingenuity. And lastly, Carbon is one of the strongest elements, and a particle of the most durable material known to man, Carbyne, which represents the strength and resilience of the black community in the face of perpetual massive oppression.
I created Carbon because I’ve been through a lot: toxic relationships, battles with self-esteem, workplace discrimination, financial struggles, depression, anxiety and more… And I’ve survived it. And not only have I survived, I’ve grown exponentially and learned a lot along the way. I wanted a community for black people to share the struggles as well as the triumphs – a space where we can discuss our personal journeys and support each other along the way. I want Carbon to be a destination where we feel connected, possibly find answers, and hopefully create valuable shifts in thinking.
I believe the black community deserves more: more peace, more clarity, more contentment, more love, more choices, more inner strength, and more joy. We are a beautiful, talented, creative, driven and powerful people. There is no limit to our potential. And we deserve a space that nurtures us, supports us, and connects us. I created Carbon to be a space where the black community can share, grow, heal and thrive.
Let’s move forward, together.
