Zaneta: Kolor Society is a member-only social club for individuals of the African Diaspora with goals to increase connections, partnerships, and standards of living. Kolor Society is focused on events in South LA and allows members to choose the type of events desired. The society enriches the black community by being a space where people can be authentically themselves with people of similar heritage.
