The United Black Community (UBC) is a coalition of individuals in the Pan-African Community that belong to many different progressive Pan-African organizations. One of UBC's principal objectives is to sponsor community-wide events that bring the Black community closer together and project the philosophy of Pan-African Nationalism to the broader Black Community.
UBC currently sponsors two main events: Kwanzaa and Kuzaliwa. For Kwanzaa, we organize various events and publicize the events of others that remain true to its original standards. In order to honor Brother Malcolm X, we hold our Kuzaliwa (Happy Birthday) celebration in May and present the Umoja Award to individuals that exemplify and honor his memory by helping to unite Black people through their work. UBC also sponsors monthly programs. See above for more details.
