About this Event

Tying together the past and the present, Boss: The Black Experience in Business explores the inspiring stories of trailblazing African American entrepreneurs and contemporary business leaders.

Join Nine Network, St. Louis Public Radio, and St. Louis Equity in Entrepreneurship Collective for a special screening and panel discussion of Boss: The Black Experience in Business, a remarkable story of a community facing tremendous obstacles to pursue social, political and economic progress. This two-hour documentary that aired on Nine PBS in April, traces the lives of African American entrepreneurs over 150 years, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of million-dollar empires.

We’ll screen one hour of the documentary followed by a moderated panel discussion with Charli Cooksey, Founder and CEO of WEPOWER; Alyce Herndon, Chief Solutionist, Onyx Business Solutions; Christian Johnson, Managing Director, MultiPass Ventures; and Lynette Watson, Regional Director, Missouri Small Business Development Center-St. Louis Region.

Registration begins at 6:00 p.m., screening begins at 6:30 p.m. Light snacks and beverages will be served. Chairs will be provided.

This event is outdoors (in case of inclement weather, the screening will move indoors).

Limited free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the Nine Network on Olive, entrance is on Spring St. Additional metered street parking, including spaces in front of our building for handicap accessibility, and parking garages are available in our Grand Center neighborhood.
