Launched in 2005, The Center for African American Health developed out of the health programs of the Metro Denver Black Church Initiative.

Throughout its history, the Black Church Initiative collaborated with black churches on programs for at-risk youth, academically struggling students, and ex-offenders, as well as health education and health screening programs. In 2005, the Metro Denver Black Church Initiative made the decision to focus its work solely on the health disparities facing African Americans and officially changed its name to The Center for African American Health.

I had a chance to speak with John Reid the center’s Development Director regarding  at stake for the African American Community to take part in the census, how the African American community deals with fears and mistrust about the census, and more.
