We Got 5 On It is a five-year look at the impact of Black Yield Institute with a focus on the developmental years of 2015 to 2020.”

 

 

 

Black Yield Institute has been developed with a clear aim and focus since the beginning of our work in November 2015. November marks the birthday of our institution and in the spirit of celebration we are excited to announce that we are releasing our first multi-year report, We Got 5 On It

 

The report serves as a document that attempts to highlight the evolution of our work from 2015 to 2020. However, we also aspire to inspire further organizational development in service to Black Land & Food Sovereignty. The report is a labor of love that motivates us to continue our work for many more years. 

 

Learn about how and why we have been able to build our institution since our inception and learn the spotlights over the past two full years of operations. Enjoy the illustrative storytelling that shares a tale from idea to seed to fulfillment. Many jewels and gems are found within the pages of We Got 5 On It

 

We recommend studying this document, not merely read the contents, and we invite people to ask questions. Black Yield Institute has a story to tell and here it is. Keep the Flame!
