In many ways, the story of the black house has long been the story that defined black families.
It was the home of the first black person to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, the first African American woman to be a U.K. Prime Minister, the mother of the youngest president of the United States.
It is a place where many African Americans have struggled to get by.
“It was always very important for black families, especially for children, to have a place that was a home,” said Tawny Clements, an author and former NAACP president who is now a professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
“Black people were always expected to have homes, to be housed and provided with an environment that was good for them, so that they would be able to go out and earn a living.
Black people were never expected to be comfortable, not in their own neighborhoods, but in a white community.”
Black people often weren’t allowed to go to school or participate in sports, or to take out loans, said Tanya T. Clements.
She was the first mother of a black child in the U, and she was told she had to stay home from school.
“My kids would be playing, and I was thinking, ‘Well, they have to take their parents out for lunch,'” she said.
She had a hard time finding a place to stay and, like so many other black families before her, she would often be left in the dark.
“I would sit there and watch them walk by and go to the store and buy something, and then I’d say, ‘How did that kid get to where they are?’ and the answer would always be, ‘He went to a white house,'” she recalled.
But in her time as president of NAACP Philadelphia, Clements helped push through a series of changes, and in 2005, the organization launched the first of many Black Houses for Black Children.
Today, the group has over 100 black-owned Black Houses in Philadelphia and many other cities across the country.
“The Black House is the black community’s answer to the white house,” Clements said.
“We want the kids to feel comfortable, to feel safe.
We want the house to be welcoming to our kids.”
One such house is in North Carolina.
In the mid-1970s, the North Carolina legislature passed a bill that gave the state authority to create a Black House for Black Youth.
“For years, the bill was passed in secret and then was quietly dropped,” said Kimmie Johnson, who is the director of the nonprofit organization North Carolina House of Black Men.
Johnson is also the first Black House member to lead the Black House.
“As a black woman, I had a very difficult time finding housing,” she said, “so I said, ‘I’ll give it to you.
“What we’re trying to do is to help families with this issue in North and South Carolina, so they can have a home where they can be in their community and not have to leave,” Johnson said. “
The Black House has since grown to include more than 5,000 houses, including at least 40 in the city of Charlotte. “

In recent years, it has opened up homes to black children in rural areas, where they may have to live in an abandoned house.
In many cases, Black House homes have also become incubators for the next generation of black leaders and advocates.
The black house is a symbol of the promise that black people have made to themselves.
“When we see the black House, we see our own people,” said Dontre Wilson, the founder of the organization Black History Month, who was a member of the Black Houses Council from 1993 to 2007.
“They were our first home, so to speak, and we know how they feel when we walk in.
We feel comfortable with that.”
But the Black house also serves as a symbol for the problems that black families have faced in the past.
“That was the house of an oppressive slave owner,” said Kari Mays, a historian and author of the book “The Lost Black House: The Black Houses of America and the Struggle for Freedom in the South.”
“The white house had a little bit of room, and the black houses had some.”
The black home was not the only place where black families struggled to find stability and a place of safety.
The homes were not just places where families could go to escape the violence and discrimination that African Americans faced in North America, but also the places where African Americans were held.
“All of the homes were segregated,” Johnson told ABC News.
“If you came to any of them, you would have been sent to a place
