The Sable Source is a website created by two black undergraduate students who were first year roommates and attend New York University. This website serves as an online database for resources related to bridging the gap for Black, Latine, and Indigenous students worldwide. Since these students of color are often denied a plethora of resources, The Sable Source aspires to provide them with as much useful information as possible that cover a wide range of subjects.
“Sable” as an adjective describes a dark brown or black color. We chose this word to represent both ourselves as well as other students of color who are often marginalized in conversations about racial injustice.
Sable (adj.)—having a dark brown or black color
