To say that I am completely humbled by this honor is an understatement. 

Check out the other community leaders who were named Black History Makers.

To say that I am completely humbled by this honor is an understatement.

Check out the other community leaders who were named Black History Makers.HCL is celebrating Black History Month by featuring current history makers in our community. Today we are featuring De'Vonna Pittman.

De’Vonna Pittman founded the Minnesota Black Authors Expo in 2017 connecting Black authors and their work to community and educators. An author, community advocate, and equity advocate, she has hosted countless community forums to empower women and their families.

She is Director of Inclusive Growth at Center for Economic Inclusion. Pittman leads the Center’s efforts to create broad, measurable shared accountability among public local, regional and statewide leaders and policy makers. She equips leaders and agencies with the knowledge, tools, and resources needed to close racial wealth gaps and accelerate inclusive economic competitiveness through racially equitable workforce, land-use, economic development, housing, transportation and infrastructure policies and investment.

-- What inspires you to do the work you do in your community? --

I am a product of generational poverty and I know the barriers to gaining stability and self-empowerment. Pulling one's self out of poverty requires utilizing systems that are often not built to truly address all that comes along with trauma, instability, and being raised in a marginalized community. I know what is possible with even a little bit of determination and having systems that minimally address basic needs of survival. I believe that every little bit of passion I put into the world around me will create incremental changes in community, and in families, and it will make life better for a lot of people.

-- What part of this work for your community are you most proud of? --

I am most proud of the Minnesota Black Authors Expo; it is a magical event. Minnesota has some of the worst educational disparities; our children, especially children of color, have fallen behind. We wanted to restore a love for reading for Black children, and in Black communities. The expo has donated over 700 books since 2017. In the process of connecting community to Black literature, we were able to build something very special.

For those of you who don’t know, I started in a new role with the Center for Economic Inclusion. 

This week marks one month of building with leaders across the region to dismantle racist structures and systems to ensure inclusive growth. 

We can do this together.
