[TX] AfriAm Resource Guide Austin
Why an African American Resource Guide?
Austin is the white Atlanta. A friend dropped that phrase, like a bomb, into a recent conversation, meaning that young, white professionals flock to our town the way that young African Americans gravitate to Atlanta, Chicago, Washington and other cities that offer the welcoming comforts of a visible and vibrant black community.
"As a newsroom, we decided to collaborate on a project that provides personal stories about Austin and selective lists of resources for African Americans. This guide, partly published in XL, will live permanently online at Statesman.com, to be updated and improved as the years go by. That way, the guide might help orient newcomers and old-timers alike."
