Abstract: This pamphlet describing The Black Resources and Information Centre, is written for general information, recruitment of members and funding purposes. It gives an overview of the effort undertaken to provide Media, Legal and Leadership Training Services to the Black community in Ontario. In addition, the pamphlet
presents a brief-history of the organization since its 1975 inception. It states the goals, structure, and services provided. Of the goals, two are stated as priorities: putting "blacks in touch with resources that allow the black community to meet its material needs", and secondly, assisting blacks to develop skills and identify through self-determination.
