About Black Jewel


Black Jewel is a non-profit established with the bold vision of elevating and illuminating the many facets of Black culture in the GTA.

Black Jewel envisions a Toronto where access to sustainable opportunities, safe spaces, economic development and ownership of wealth is representative of our city’s demographics. A Toronto in which Black communities have agency to lead efforts and inform justice, access, inclusion diversity and equity in all ecosystems. 


Black Jewel is a central hub for community development and incubates B3 (Black-led, Black serving and Black mandated) organizations leading innovative approaches to community engagement, community-led research, and community economic development. Our mission is to facilitate and orchestrate structured community-led entrepreneurship collaborations and scale innovation to establish a Black Cultural Centre in Toronto.
