When asked why BLACC chose the platform it did to launch, CEO Demetra Adams Davis said, "The poetry and art contest are fun ways to drive attention to serious culture and community perspectives. It also provides an opportunity for all people of color to showcase their talent."

"As BLACC continues to expand so does the framework that is needed to support these artists. BLACC is lifting those who seek a powerful platform to showcase their art. We’re asking people to lift them too. They can do that by supporting this effort," stated Fran Briggs, Publicist to BLACC.


BLACC wanted to make an impact that would counter today’s negative atmosphere. We identified five core areas of attraction and needs for people, and in particular, people of color: Building, legacy, artistry, culture, and community. To raise awareness and achieve artistry recognition, BLACC encourages youth and adults to positively impact their legacy, culture, and community by utilizing their creative gifts. BLACC is a subsidiary of Gordavi, LLC, and was founded by Demetra Adams-Davis.
