Why the Black Planning project?

My drive to create the Black Planning Project was from a desire to learn about the journey of Blacks working in urban planning and why they chose to pursue a career in this field - a field where there are few Black professionals.

I hope that The Black Planning project becomes a space to promote the contributions of Black planners working in Canada, build community among Black planners, and, most importantly, be used as an educational tool to inspire Black youth to engage in planning and creating spaces and places where we live, work, worship and play.
