This is a space for unity, for learning, for business connectivity. Still We Rise was created to build a global network between people of African heritage, wherever in the world they happen to be. Although its creators are based in the UK, we extend our arms in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters across the globe and hope that you will become a part of our dream of building and connecting our global community. One of our aims for 2020 is to provide a FREE online marketplace for black businesses and services, creating an effective link between suppliers and customers, not just in the UK but around the world.
Let us work together. For example, if we in the UK know where your business is when we come to visit the country that you are resident in, we can shop with you, supporting your business and circulating money within our community, enriching both you and ourselves in the process. If you are visiting the UK, you can do the same. This works for every country in the world that people of African heritage are resident in. We build, we become stronger, together.
Please come in, take a look around and get involved (if you want to) by contributing to the Encyclopaedia Africana, sending us your business details, browsing for goods and services in the Marketplace, letting us know about any news and events that would be of interest to your brothers and sisters of the diaspora, reading or sending us posts for the Listening Tree or making a donation.
This is an entirely independent initiative, focused squarely on the growth and development of us as a people. Emerging from the shared visions of Rashid Nix and Christiana O’Connor, this initiative requires dedication, commitment and donations in order to grow. We have the dedication and commitment – for us, this website is our labour of love. But we can’t build and grow without you, your knowledge and your donation.
Without your input, nothing happens. Without your support, there is no growth. This is your moment to be part of something the Black community needs; our history written by us from our perspective and a positive resource and asset for all of us and our children, as well as a sustainable source of development for our businesses.
