Who We Are
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 significant loss.
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.

Right now, all of the Google alerts I use to find information for this site is hitting on Obama and Rev. Wright. I'm not happy at all and I have developed more searches to try to find more Black self help information.
PhatBack Athletics is a Philadelphia based track & field club and mentor program that serves young men between the ages of 13 and 18-years-old. The program is administered by Mister Mann Frisby, who has eight years of coaching experience.

PhatBack athletes train three times a week from April through July and competes mostly on weekends.
In an effort to maintain the quality of the coaching and mentor program, the size of the team will be limited to 25 members for the first two years. After that time an extensive evaluation of the program will be made, and it will be determined whether or not the team should be expanded.

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.

Black Women of Essence, Inc. (BWOE) is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Women of Color Organization. Our vision is to enhance the quality of life by providing resources, services, education, networking opportunities along with advocacy and promoting self-awareness within our communities. We believe when women improve the quality of their lives, the communities to which they contribute also improve. BWOE was built on a foundation of Sisterhood that allows us to strengthen, encourage, empower and embrace one another with genuine love. BWOE is comprised of a variety of women who are from different demographics (professional, social, geographic, age, education, economic, religion and race) but we 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 Mothers of Color.
