Where did The Dark Phx Come From?

As a resident of the valley of the sun for just under a decade, I have always felt Phoenix was the best move I have ever made. It’s full of opportunity, it has an ideal year round climate, and it has some of the most beautiful scenery. But… there has always been one thing missing. A central location I could go to for all things Black and Local. I was looking for local resources, local entertainment, where to find good comfort food, and most importantly my people.

I soon realized, I was not alone in this search. There were so many other black people, who relocated here or just visiting in search of the same thing. I’m originally from the ‘show me’ state, I can only talk about a problem for so long. I built this platform to help the blacks native to Phoenix, the blacks relocating to Phoenix and the blacks visiting Phoenix; economically, socially, mentally, and physically.

Dark Phoenix will consistently provide new content to inform, promote and entertain the black community of Phoenix, Arizona.
