Councilwoman Kendra Black took office as the Denver City Council Member representing District 4 in southeast Denver in July 2015.
She is a proud Denver native, born and raised in southeast Denver. She grew up working in my family’s small business. Graduating from Denver’s Thomas Jefferson High School, she has a BA in history and political science from CU Boulder and an MA in history from CU Denver. She is passionate about southeast Denver where she and her husband have raised their three children.
She has been actively involved in the community for more than two decades, successfully advocating for schools, students, neighborhoods, and parks. Her professional experience includes work in non-profits, education and community outreach, including the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, CU Denver, and George Washington High School. A strong believer in community-based solutions, she has created a neighborhood park at Slavens School that serves as a gathering place, a school playground, and an athletic field. Combining her passions—history, education, and community—she grew the fledgling National History Day in Colorado program to one of the top social studies and literacy programs in the country for middle and high school students.
Kendra is committed to serving her constituents, advocating for them and ensuring that they have a voice. She knows that together, we will keep Denver strong and moving in the right direction for everyone!
We love hearing from you! Take our Southeast Denver and the South By Southeast event surveys and tell us your thoughts.
