The Long Black Line Organization relies on the support of individuals, volunteers, private foundations and corporations to carry out its mission. Your contribution will make a difference in helping The Long Black Line Organization empower children and build stronger communities.


The Long Black Line.Org awarded $2000 to the Jasper ISD to support middle school programs that used oral film interviews to capture the story of these African American communities in Jasper County including the two Rosenwald Schools still standing there.
