This site is designed to enlighten, encourage, entertain, and elevate the community. There are many discussions held in parlors, barber shops, salons, and other private settings that should be given a national stage. The community has problems within and without that need to be addressed. As we move forward, we need to bring ourselves to a higher level. Blackness Defined desires to be informative and part of the solution.

A person may be thought of as “losing their blackness” by not adhering to the mainstream thoughts of the African-American community. Black: Is a color but in science it represents the absence of color.
