Black in Alaska
Summary: "Throughout 2020, Rasmuson Foundation gathered with Alaska Black leaders to discuss critical issues and how the Foundation could be a better partner to the Black community in Alaska. Through these conversations, a need for more positive media on and told by Black Alaskans was highlighted. The Foundation is glad to support the rollout of Black in Alaska, a multimedia project with interviews, photos and short videos of 50 Alaskans who are Black. Participants are from all over the state and represent diverse backgrounds in age, gender and socioeconomic status. Through storytelling, this project aims to dismantle stereotypes and create a deeper connection between the Black community and fellow Alaskans. Stories, photos and other media will live on Black in Alaska’s website, blackinalaska.org and be shared on Facebook and Instagram."
