The #BlindianProject is the "Meeting Place for Black x South Asian communities. Started as a passion project in 2017, the project drew its inspiration from an incident in which street mobs attacked African students in Noida, New Delhi. 

 

Restarted at the beginning of 2020, the events of this year have seen the community grow from 1,000 < to over 21,000 people. Known as the "Meeting Place For Black x South Asian Communities," the #BlindianProject aims to normalize Black x South Asian relationships while dismantling antiBlackness.

 

To date, the #BlindianProject has been featured in international publications such as: The BBC World News, The Lily (Washington Post), The Times of India, BBC Asian Radio, and many others.

We believe in removing negative stereotypes by creating experiences that unite our communities and inspire solidarity.
