Center for Black Equity

Center for Black Equity The Center for Black Equity (CBE) is committed to supporting leaders, institutions and programs for health, economic and social equity for LGBTQ people of African descent.
(8)

The Center for Black Equity refocuses and elevates the deep commitment to our mission of achieving equality and justice for Black LGBT communities through expansive platforms focused on Health Equity, Economic Equity and Social Equity. This shift fosters a much needed sense of urgency to increase the publicโ€™s understanding of the myriad challenges LGBT communities of African descent face on a daily basis. Our expanded platform will facilitate the erosion of misconceptions and prejudices against our members and revitalize the publicโ€™s commitment to advocate collaboratively for immediate institutional changes in laws, policies, programs and resource availabilities that allow everyone, including Black LGBT people, to achieve equality, social justice, and compete effectively in the marketplace.

Mission: The mission of the Center for Black Equity (CBE) is to promote a multinational LGBT network dedicated to: improving health and wellness opportunities; economic empowerment, and equal rights while promoting individual and collective work, responsibility, and self-determination. Since the CBEโ€™s founding in 1999, members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day โ€“ health, human services, education, social, economic, and equality related issues.

Welcome back, and happy Friday! It is time for our weekly feature โ€œBlack Rainbow Joy.โ€ This feature seeks to uplift amazing black or POC individuals or groups who are doing amazing things in our community. We are working to continue to shine a light on the deserving to show that we see you, we appreciate you and we applaud you for your service in your industry. This week we highlight Mr. Kenya Hutton!โฃ
โฃ
Kenya Hutton was born in Brooklyn, NY to Jamaican immigrant parents. He has been living in the Washington, DC area for the last 15 years. Kenya boasts that he represents a number of amazing organizations in our community. His titles include Program Director of DC Black Pride (A program of the
Center for Black Equity), Co-Chair of the Capitol Ballroom Council, Administrative and Program Director for Damien Ministries, Vice President of BHT Foundation (Formerly Brother Help Thyself), Commissioner for Washington DC on the Washington, DC Regional Planning Commission on Health and HIV, and Executive Board Member for The House of Garรงon. He names 18 years of service and notes that all of the aforementioned focus on the betterment and equity of each of us as human beings and specifically support LGBTQIA+ people in the Washington, DC area and beyond. When asked, Kenya tells that itโ€™s hard to list one great success thus far but highlights the resurgence of DC Black Pride. Kenya says โ€œmany remember when the attendance for DC Black Pride went down and it has been through hard work, determination, and community collaboration, we have been able to bring DC Black Pride to regaining its title as the Premier Black Pride experience.โ€ We invite you to meet Kenya Hutton!โฃ

10/02/2020

Plan your vote now.

Did you know the United States Constitution does not include any language that grants your right to vote? Voting is largely within the purview of each state within the union.

After the Civil War, the 15th Amendment, ratified in 1870, prohibited states from denying a male citizen the right to vote based on โ€œrace, color or previous condition of servitude.โ€

However, Black codes and other discriminatory practices were implemented to stop Blacks, especially in the South, from voting. The right for women to participate in the electoral process did not occur until 1920 after the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified.

While African Americans consistently challenged and resisted Black Codes and other Jim Crow laws for decades, the Selma to Montgomery march for voting rights, known as Bloody Sunday, on March 7, 1965 proved to be a watershed moment in gaining access to the ballot box.

The traumatic event caused President Lyndon B. Johnson to demand that Congress approve voting rights legislation. The Senate and House passed the Voting Rights Act and President Johnson signed it into law on August 6, 1965.

The Voting Rights Act prohibited the use of literacy tests that undermined African-Americans attempts to exercise their right to vote. The act also provided federal oversight of voter registration in areas where less than 50 percent of the non-white population had not registered to vote, and authorized the U.S. Attorney general to investigate the use of poll taxes in state and local elections.

The Voting Rights Act gave African American Voters a legal tool to challenge voting restrictions and eventually increased voter participation. However in 2013, the United State Supreme Court โ€“ in a 5-4 decisionโ€” struck down a major provision in the act that required federal oversight of election laws within states and localities that had a history of discriminatory practices.

These areas included: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia in addition to 69 other jurisdictions in California, Florida, New York, North Carolina, Michigan and South Dakota.

The more things change, the more they stay the same

Up until 2013, if a state or locality with a history of discriminatory practices wanted to make changes to their voting laws, those changes would first need to be approved by the United States Justice Department. The Supreme Court justices invalidated this requirement within section 4(b) of the Voting Rights Act, citing that Black and brown voter turnout models were on par or exceeded white turnout in states placed under federal watch.

Although Voter Suppression (votingrightsalliance.org/forms-of-voter-suppression) is not new, this change to the Voting Rights Act gutted a major protection in the fight to maintain our voice and our vote. In the same way Black Codes and other Jim Crow policies disenfranchised African American voters, years ago, new forms of suppression have taken hold across the nation. From polling place reductions and consolidation to strict voter photo ID laws and the practice of purging voter rolls as seen in Georgia, Florida and Wisconsin are now commonplace.

An informed voter is a powerful voter. Be vigilant and stay abreast of any electoral changes taking place in your state or local community. If you want to get involved in this yearโ€™s election or have questions, visit iwillvote.com.

Again, plan your vote now. And make sure two or three others have a plan in place, too!

So I made the news in Cincinnati (again?...i think). It's been a tireless few months, but I'm happy to pour into my community to ensure we can celebrate Pride amid a pandemic, the continued fight for Black lives, and one of the lowest struggles in my personal life. Sometimes I wonder if anyone notices or if I'm making a difference in Cincy, but I've gotta take the blinders off now and again and hug myself. Tireless but never thankless. Our events are virtual, so check us out at www.cincinnatiblackpride.com https://www.wcpo.com/news/local-news/hamilton-county/cincinnati/cincinnati-black-pride-goes-virtual-because-of-coronavirus-pandemic
Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of this important conversation ๐ŸคŽ๐Ÿ–คโคโœŠ๐Ÿฝ
INTRODUCING... NEW IN 2020 KIBURI: A SWAHILI WORD MEANING PRIDE. This year we are introducing the Kiburi Award. Many native Cincinnatians with roots and deep connections to the city and our community have moved away. Some have returned and others stay where they are and continue to make Cincinnati proud with their contributions to the LGBTQ+ community and beyond. Cincy Black Pride's co-founder Tim'm West, made Cincy his home in 2017 after decades away and has been among our most proud ambassadors. So this year and going forward, we will honor the movers and shakers from Cincy who are proud to honor their roots here. They say "wherever you go, there you are"; and we are proud of these amazing leaders who share the best of who we are with the world. The Kiburi Awards will be given at the Cincy Black Pride Virtual Kickoff on Friday, June 26th between 8pm - 10pm EST. More details on the platform and registration for this awards ceremony will be available on June 12, 2020. Check out our 2020 awardees.

For people who recently started Prides or our long-term events, did anyone else notice how white prides changed the way they work. Our people are laughable. We did three non-pride month events our first year. Our local legacy pride decides they are doing more events this year. I just saw where another cityโ€™s pride is doing a book scholarship.
