THE BLACK SUPERHERO PROJECT

10 Acts of Service on Behalf of CFC40 Inc. To Initiate a Ripple Effect of Change

Charles Coleman Jr.

Civil Rights Attorney and Activist

 

In today’s world of toxic dialogue and vitriolic political overload, too many of us spend time engaging negativity and giving away our power. What would it look like for us to lead where we are? It would look like us making the conscious decision to have an impact in the spaces we already have access to, without waiting for permission from someone else or an institution to grant us entrance. It would look like communities of color re-engaging to engineer solutions to the problems that afflict us most and which we know best, rather than waiting for help that may not ever show up. It would look like the Black Superhero Project.

What Is It?

10 cities. 10 service projects. And a ripple effect of change. The Black Superhero Project is an ambitious initiative being undertaken by CFC40 and its founder, Charles F. Coleman Jr. Charles is a civil rights attorney and activist who has decided to challenge himself and others in the spirit of leading where you are. He is setting out to complete 10 different service projects in 10 different communities across the country. Each project will involve collaborations between Charles’ CFC40 non-profit and other community-based organizations in different cities to target specific demographics that are uniquely affected.

 

A central premise of The Black Superhero Project is that we all should “Do Our Part.” Accordingly, we have consistently been able to rely on an array of donated services and products at a reduced cost, or without any cost at all. The ask is simple and straightforward. A Day of Inclusion will be the first activation that involves as many state and local agencies.
