African American Ladies Empowered to Grow Opportunities

About Us

Times have not changed much since the days of 1963 when the four black girls were killed in the bombing of 16th street Baptist Church. When one look at the landscape of our society. Although we believe that all lives matter, the condition of black life is one of mourning. At any moment one’s life could be taken away.  Although many have tried, there really is no mode of empathy that can replicate the daily strain of knowing a black person can be killed for simply being black.  It is sad to say but safety suggests that American assimilate corpses in their daily comings and goings.  Blacks have been hanging from trees, tossed into the Atlantic Ocean, beaten, shot in churches, gunned down by the police and the list goes on. All of this good life is surround by the ambient feeling that at any given moment, a Black person is being killed in the street or in the home by the hatred of a fellow American. Martin Luther King Jr., lead the civil rights movement that demanded and altered the course of American lives by backing up those demands with the willingness to give up your life in service for civil rights. In order to see the changes we desire in our community, we must do that same. We recognize these challenges and understand the contemporary problems of today, we (A-lEGO) are here to serve our beloved community.
