The Black is Gold Organization, established in 2017 by Amber Nicole Anderson during her sophomore year of high school, was inspired by the song "Black is Gold" by Wale. Motivated by this inspiration, Anderson created a video celebrating the diversity of Black women, marking the inception of the Black is Gold Organization, NFP. We are a non-profit headquartered in Chicago, with programming also available in the Hampton Roads Virginia area, the Atlanta metro area, and DeKalb County, Illinois. Our core objectives revolve around preparing young women for college and their careers, fostering community engagement, and empowering them.

It's more than just an organization; it's a movement - The Golden Girl Movement.
