We began The New Black Codes after realizing that our community was in serious peril. With the media in frenzy over the recent crimes against our community, we decided that something had to be done, and done now! We didn’t want to just sign a petition or talk within our family and friends about all the issues our community has. We believed our community needed real change. We researched the statistics on our wealth, assets, family life, and health compared to other racial groups. The results were so alarming we got to work right away. We believe this change can only come with improving all of these categories. We must become players in this game.
Besides thriving to improve our community, personally we enjoy spending time with our family and friends. Dr. Keisha Bates is a successful chiropractor and Daryl Bates is a thriving business owner. Both have a love for learning and charity.
