WELCOME TO OUR NEW CEO, DR. ANGELA GRIFFIN
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Black lives, due to violence fueled by racism and the effects of COVID-19. We know long-standing institutional racism has negatively impacted our Black communities and we are calling for change, as well as stand in unity with those calling for change.
This month we sit down with Tremayne Edwards, Byrd Barr Place’s new director of operations, as he shares glimpses of his Southern upbringing, his present time in the Pacific Northwest, and his global vision for an equitable Black future.
We achieved the “impossible” over the last two years. We created a space that we own and cannot be moved from. Read through our Annual Report to learn more about our work in 2021 and 2022.
