who we are
The mission of for the black kid, inc. is to inform, empower, and free Black youth. This is done through educating Black youth and their families about Black history, holistic wellness, entrepreneurship, innovation, and encouraging the circulation of the Black dollar. We believe that this specially curated curriculum will equip our youth with what they need to be liberated, educated, and whole.
The vision of for the black kid, inc. is to cultivate a generation of Black youth who know the truth of who they are and where they come from, who value wellness, who are unafraid to be critical of oppressive systems, who are free to explore their creativity, and who understand the power in spending our dollar in our communities.
After graduating from John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School in 2016, she progressed into her collegiate career which began at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2017, she continued her journey at Georgia State University where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a year later received her Masters of Arts in Sociology. While in academia, she was able to streamline her interests and develop a critical lens to view the education system through. Noticing the flaws, shortcomings, and ways in which Black youth are disenfranchised she focused her efforts on creating solutions. To exemplify this, in 2019 she established For The Black Kid, Inc. with the hopes of bridging the gap between the public school system and Black youth. Kennedy has dedicated her efforts to liberating Black youth in her community, and she aspires to aid in cultivating a generation of Black youth who are proud of who they are and where they come from, and who are ready to invest their knowledge, time, and love back into their communities.
