Carraque Widows is an online community where
widows-of-color can share the impact of losing a spouse or significant
other. We present a platform that provides a place for unbiased
support, suggestions and ideas on proceeding with the rebirth of life.
What We Do
Carraque Widows listens, and we let you talk. We
provide an online forum that acknowledges the significant voice of
widows-of-color and the unique depth of emotion that has had, up to
now, little outlet in this digital world. We also compile online
resource information that may prove useful in life navigation after
How We Help
The cathartic nature of being able to talk freely cannot be
over-valued. Neither can the value of connecting with others "just
like you". Just by being here, Carraque Widows hopes to provide a necessary connection among our membership that will help clear the path towards healing and a renewed life.

Agoodblackman.com was born out of the belief that the purpose of our
history is to enhance our present and secure our futures. We believe
that our history exists for us and that the common history all African
Americans share should be the basis for our solidarity, not an excuse
for our disintegration as a race. It is our mission to remind you of
that. Agoodblackman.com believes in the countless numbers of Black men
out there who have devoted their lives to building strong communities,
families and relationships. We want to help those Black men (and women)
who have positive messages to convey. We want as many of them as
possible to know that we're listening and that we'll devote our best
interests to helping them get their positive messages out.

Color Organization. Our vision is to enhance the quality of life by
providing resources, services, education, networking opportunities

all share the same visions for empowering each other and improving our
communities. Our Sisterhood provides an atmosphere that is comfortable
and related; we offer a listening ear, advice and experiences while
respecting another Sisters opinion or beliefs and "agree to disagree".
We were founded in the late spring / early fall of 1999. We began as an
online Stay-at-home Black Mother’s email loop. We provided comfort,
support, knowledge and a sisterly atmosphere to Expectant Mother’s and
