Welcome to The Black Professional – a digital community that creates content for Black professionals including job listings, local event listings, and business listings. Each week we share inspiring stories of successful black professionals from around the country who are thriving in their career. In 2012 the NolaBlackProfessionals.com was launched by a small group of young black female professionals that noticed an absence of positive focus on the black community in New Orleans. Over the years they began to see the need for  media outlets that focused on the social and career lives of black professionals and set out to provide that service next, across the U.S.
