We Are The #BlindianProject
The BlindianProject is a social impact media platform and global community at the intersection of Black x Brown culture. We aim to normalize Black x Brown relationships and dismantle anti-Blackness wherever it exists.
Known as the "Home of Black x Brown Culture" we create cross-cultural, intergenerational experiences that unite our communities and inspire solidarity.
