The Chicago Black Professionals Meetup is a group primarily made up of men and women over the age of 21 here in the Chicago area whom share an interest in ethnic heritages rooted in the African diaspora. We come from broadly diverse educational, professional, and social backgrounds, but we have a common interest: to come together for social networking. We strive to promote social connections between our members, and to promote a healthy and free exchange of information and ideas between the members of the group that will enrich their lives.
Please note that our events are intended for adults over the age of 21. Exceptions will be noted in the event descriptions or comments.
