Types of Events

Corporate/Business Gathering
"Our office functions are so boring, always the bland people. Just once I'd like to see the look on my colleagues' faces when I show up with a black friend!"

Corporate/Business Meeting
"Sometimes we just need a black perspective on policy, consumer opinion, or just the 'word on the street' but I don't know who to call." and "My company is doing a mandatory diversity training, but we don't have any black people. We need someone to help us feel diverse, if only for one day."

Non-Profit Function NEW!
"We try to diversify while we work on social issues, but we can't do it all!"

Private/Personal Gathering
"Having a black person at my next party would certainly liven things up!" and "If I took a black person to my next social function, I'd have everyone talking!"

"I want to spend some time with a black person. I'm sure it would be good for me, I'm just curious!"

"I want to know more about being black, so do my friends and colleagues. It always seems like I say the wrong things when I meet black people. I just want to learn, help!"

"My friends would think I was so cool if we just happened to run into a black friend of mine when we were shopping or eating lunch at our favorite restaurant!"

Emergency//Short Notice (24 hour window)
