Our why

Affirming Black influencers.


Young Black & Influential Omaha is a movement designed to affirm and empower Black leadership or “Influencers” in the Omaha metropolitan area. So, our “why” is pretty simple; to make sure that Black leaders are seen and have the tools and platform to do the work.


We exist to affirm and elevate Black folks.
