Black Bread: Professional Network of Black Russian Speakers

Published: June 11, 2014

Black Bread is a professional network of Black Russian-speakers.

Black Bread members are based primarily in New York City & Washington, DC, but many reside throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.

They represent a wide range of career fields – academia, non-profit & private sectors, government, the arts, intelligence, and more – yet are connected through our love of all things Russian.

They also work to encourage more Black students to learn Russian and to study abroad in former Soviet countries.

Black Bread’s highest priority is ensuring that members have online access to the professional resources & personal support of a growing community of Black Russian-speakers. Member newsletters, online social networking, happy hours, and other events bring together Russophiles who have typically felt isolated in their interest in Russia.
