WHO WE ARE
"The Talented Tenth of the Negro race must be made leaders of thought and missionaries of culture among their people."- W.E.B DuBois
Education through leadership is essential for any community to thrive. The Talented X want to empower and awaken black excellence throughout Portland, Oregon. From North to South, we will break the grounds of oppression through innovation.
At The Talented X, we are stepping up our efforts in educating the black community on our history. Through enrichment and wellness programs, we will delve deep into our complex stories. From Africa to America, lies a wealth of inheritance and uniqueness. The Talented X will be sure to celebrate both attributes in the Pacific Northwest.
Engaging The Community
With this initiative, our goal is to engage the community through events and programs built to uplift and inspire. We hope to bridge communities together through shared ideas and accomplishments. Here at the Talented X we believe that anything is possible with the power of community.
