Black America Cares - Nonprofit Showcase Podcast


Oct 18, 2021

In 2017 at age 27, Azurae was 5 months pregnant with a 10-month-old baby when she became a widow. Realizing there was a niche for young, Black widows and widowers who were underserved, she started a new 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2020.

​Young, Black & Widowed Inc. is a progressive nonprofit, plus podcast, which connects Black Millennials & Generation Z widow and widowers to a daily one-on-one peer support line.  They have weekly grief support groups, they educate you about grief resources, survivor benefits, scholarships to impact their careers as well as a community podcast.

On the podcast, they discuss listener-submitted issues that affect the Black community such as: the mental challenges of being alone during Covid-19, especially as a widow or widower, the challenges of solo-parent during a global pandemic, the disproportionate loss of life in the Black community and much more.
