In April, UBAA launched a call to action to raise $30,000 to add 3 more full-tuition scholarships. While we did not secure 3 full tuition scholarships, we were able to raise over $21,000 which equated to 2 more tuition scholarships.

Democratic Debate Nights

Posted On: July 30, 2019








The Debate was hosted by The Metaphor Club, a local African American shared workspace on Crenshaw with monthly membership options for mobile freelancers/entrepreneurs.

The first of many Democratic Debate Nights was a unifying event. UBAA was present in large numbers, fueled by a collective concern about the seriousness of the issues facing the African American community. Feedback as candidates spoke was captured on a wall sized chalkboard, with all viewers able to give candidates' points based on their responses to the facilitators questions. During intermissions, the workspace owners raffled memberships and guests enjoyed light snacks. The Metaphor Club is a creative ...

If there is one thing for certain its that for many of us, we are still very much 'in love' with our 44th president. The first gathering of the UBAA Literary Book Club Series 'I (HEART) Obama gave attendees the chance to express thoughts ranging from the first time they heard Barack Obama to the first time they really thought he could win the nomination to the emotional roller coaster of his run and ultimate win. Erin Aubry Kaplan shared keen insight into the closeted adoration Black people had to have in public, the Superman/Kent duality of Obama, his sexuality and his transformative affect on the psyche of Black people.

In the second Chat and Chew gathering on Saturday April 15th, we will engage debate on Obama's Fulfillment of Black History and his successful ...

In his nearly two terms as president, Barack Obama has solidified his status as something African Americans haven’t had for fifty years: a folk hero. The 1960s delivered Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, forever twinned as larger-than-life outsiders and truth tellers who took on racism and died in the process. Obama is different: Not an outsider but president, head of the most powerful state in the world; a centrist Democrat, not the face of a movement. Yet he is every bit a folk hero, doing battle with the beast of a system created to keep people like him on the margins. He is unique among presidents and entirely unique among black people, who never expected to have a president so soon.

Erin Aubry Kaplan has been a journalist covering black issues for twenty-five ...
