Ethel Lucas was a matriarch figure in a tight-knit Black community whose home offered warmth, laughter, and care. Her belief in community as a practice lives on in her granddaughter, our Founder and CEO, Naj Austin.
Our mission is inspired by Ethel — we create healing spaces that center and celebrate people of color through conversation, wellness and creativity. A community designed for intention, healing, and creation. At Ethel’s Club, we see our members as unique individuals that deserve care, celebration, and healing. We believe that when we’re given the tools to thrive as individuals, we create new worlds when we come together as a community. We’re dedicated to providing those tools to encourage healing, inspiration, and communal care.
Ethel’s Club is the first social and wellness platform designed to celebrate people of color. Our motive? To spark the next renaissance with people of color at the forefront.
Through our physical spaces, online marketplace, concert venue, and soon to launch global digital platform, Ethel’s Club is made to heal, spark inspiration, and create connections.
