What is the G-Project?
The “G Project” is an educational campaign that highlights the immigrant origins of all Americans. In particular this initiative dispels notions which suggest that immigrants look a certain way, which can be incorrect. The project brings awareness to achievements of G’s who have worked in entertainment, athletics, economics, politics, and education amongst many more industries.
Bertha Lewis on inspiration for the G-Project:
'The G-Project was born to showcase the diverse immigrant backgrounds of America's social fabric'- Bertha Lewis, president and founder of the The Black Institute
