The Ultimate Black Business Building Summit

About this Event

Hosted by CaDeidra Jarmon and Fallon McClain of The Black Girl Collaborative and inspirational author, Adil Ismaaeel.

Join us Saturday, December 14th from 2-5:30 as we gather together to discuss the Current State of Black Businesses in Delaware and how we can support each other to strengthen our community.

Did you know that a dollar circulates in the Black Community for only 6 hours? This is staggering in comparison to neighboring communities where the dollar can circulate within for up to a month. This is a huge contributor to the Racial Wealth Gap.

Reviving the Black Wall Street: Before Tulsa, OK was popularized by its historic massacre in 1921, it was a flourishing self-contained hub, known as the Black Wall Street. The area had been considered one of the most affluent African American communities in the United States for the early part of the 20th century featuring luxury retail shops, restaurants, movie theaters, libraries and so much more.

The Ultimate Black Business Building Summit starts with a discussion on our current state of black businesses in Delaware.

This is an amazing opportunity to hear from our many black businesses in Delaware on how we can emulate the greatness of Black Wall Street thoughts on closing the Racial Wealth Gap. We will end our discussion with some actionable steps that will benefit our community.

2-4pm: Mixer- Music, Food & Vendors

4-5pm: Panel Discussion

5-6pm: Meet & Greet- Networking

The Panel Discussion is hosted by Blake Saunders aka Blake the Brain. He will ask intriguing questions to our amazing panelists.

This summit is Free and open to anyone that supports the black business community as we continue to strive towards our goals of closing the Racial Wealth Gap.
