"BLK understands that one of the most important aspects of Black life is the sense of community we've fostered over history – specifically amongst Black women." said Jonathan Kirkland, Head of Marketing & Brand for BLK. "For years, Black women have been innovators and trendsetters across various verticals, disciplines and fields. Having these conversations is a natural progression of how we can empower our users to support one another and build meaningful relationships throughout life."

This event series is part of the dating app's "Once You Go BLK" campaign, which reframes what it means to "go BLK" through empowering messaging about the positive outcomes and implications of being a part of the BLK community, lauding the unlimited potential of the millennial and Gen Z Black community. In this instance, when you go BLK, the community thrives.


BLK was introduced in August 2017 and is currently the leading dating and lifestyle app for Black singles. With a goal of helping users find love at its core, BLK has built a community and space where Black love in all its forms and expressions can happen every day. BLK's mission is simple: bring Black people together to spark meaningful connections.
