Nationwide  B.L.A.C.K. 2 Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower Black Men to strengthen underserved communities through education and inspiration. The organization sponsors activities that promote childhood literacy, mentorship, scholarship promotion, community service initiatives and charitable giving.

The acronym B.L.A.C.K. stands for Bringing Love And Conscious Knowledge 2 Life. B.L.A.C.K. 2 Life or B2L recruits Black Men worldwide to host free book drives for children and to interact positively within the communities they live in and serve. As black men, they plan to galvanize our communities to combat the often-overlooked impact that illiteracy has on mass incarceration and the criminal justice system within our communities.

B.L.A.C.K. 2 Life has worked tirelessly this past year enacting their mission across the globe, but they need more volunteers and financial support. Since the organization's founding in 2017, B2L has given out over 30,000 free books to children in 18 cities in 14 states.

Some highlights from this year include two (2) National Book Giveaways that took place on April 14, 2018 and September 29, 2018. B2L has also partnered with countless organizations to distribute books at local events nationwide. On August 4, 2018, B2L collaborated internationally with the Trinidadian based non-profit organization Golden Spoon and passed out just under 1000 free books to children at the Emancipation Day Celebration in Trinidad and Tobago.

Their most recent promotion, #100BlackMenRead, was held on November 27, 2018. This day celebrated #GivingTuesday, which marks the beginning of the charitable giving season worldwide. This campaign was a huge success as 75 Black Men worldwide participated by giving their time to read to children in their communities. B2L supporters signed up to read in Maryland, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, New York, and Kentucky. They also had friends in Nigeria and Trinidad and Tobago participating as well.

For 2019, B.L.A.C.K. 2 Life plans on offering scholarship opportunities to Black Men entering the education field, school supply grants for teachers, and more free book drives. B2L also plans to partner with the non-profit organization W.A.T.C.H. (What About The Children in Haiti) to send 1000 books to children in Haiti and participate in the Little Free Library book exchange to build shared libraries in communities of color.
