Welcome To NIV

NIV (Not in Vain) is a racial justice movement established in 2020 to share positive and powerful images of Black people. We are challenging the current narratives and sharing diverse images of Blackness. We are Fathers, Colleges Graduates, Business Owners, and so much more. We are brilliant and proud people. NIV honors our ancestors' countless sacrifices, and we celebrate the path that has been laid for our liberation.  Our creative innovation, intelligence, strength, and resilience is feared by the world, yet we still set the standard. Despite White supremacy, racism, and injustice, we still assert our freedom. We continue to succeed and make our ancestors proud. We refuse to allow centuries of pain and suffering to be in vain. We are the very freedom we are seeking. Harriet, Malcolm, and Assata, your legacy is Not In Vain.
