Who we are

Freedmen’s Lab is a consultancy and social enterprise start-up studio based in Detroit, Michigan.

Our vision is to help create the most culturally authentic business and nonprofit experiences, especially in spaces where people of color are underrepresented and underestimated.

We strive to create novel solutions that may one-day end poverty and promote peace across the color line.

What projects are we working on?

We love this work and sometimes we think of ideas that haven’t yet been created or aren’t serving people as well as they should.

Manilla

We make donating to black nonprofits simple.

 

Manilla is building the first donation platform that lets individuals donate to black nonprofits in one place instead of through each of their websites. 

Past Explorations:

Bringing the HBCU experience to Detroit

Bring the HBCU experience to Detroit through the establishment of The Detroit College. The Detroit College has the unique ability to both preserve and cultivate black culture better than historically designated sites or museums because it is living and breathing. Especially in the context of Detroit's history, representation, and location.
