Hello I am Charles Nelson founder and director of the UBUNTU Center of Chicago (UCC) for Same Gender Loving, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender persons of African descent in the Chicago-land area. I would like to thank you for taking time out to explore our website and for your current and future support. Over the last 40 years it has been my honor to serve such a huge and diverse community of dynamic individuals in Chicago. I have learned so much from our struggle to gain acceptance and recognize how powerful our impact to the history of Chicago has and continue to be. It is that impact that encouraged me to move forward with making sure none of that history is not only remember but praised for the strength and power that it contains. So as I begin this next journey in my life, I ask for your continued support.
