The 365 Project

The 365 Project is a Yellow Springs/Miami Township-based nonprofit organizations that seeks to facilitate discussions regarding racial diversity in Yellow Springs/Miami Township. It was formed in 2008 by a multi-racial group of Yellow Springs residents intent on recognizing African-American culture not just during Black History Month in February, but all year round. The group has had a particular focus on education because of its ability to empower marginalized groups. It has noted achievement gaps between African-American and other Yellow Springs students, has hosted periodic panel discussions under the theme “Growing Up Black in Yellow Springs,” and hosts the annual Elaine Comegys Film Festival at which a documentary is screened for Yellow Springs High School students followed by a facilitated discussion of the film.

The mission of The 365 Project is to serve as a catalyst that challenges and supports the people of Yellow Springs and Miami Township to engage critically and respectfully in dialogue and action that promotes and sustains diverse African-American heritage and culture, and educational equity, 365 days a year.
