The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA
Bmorenews.com is a huge advocate and supporter of small black businesses. We understand them to be the backbone of America. Hence, we make it our business to celebrate these black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race.
Why? Because as these businesses grow, they are most likely to hire other black people. And if you’ve looked around, many need a job.
Honorees receive the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award created in memory of the 600 black businesses that were bombed and burned to the ground in Tulsa in 1921. To date, we have honored hundreds in New York City, across the State of Maryland, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and most recently, New Orleans.
We believe the solution for Black America and beyond is very simple. Given our plethora of challenges, we still garner a trillion dollars in annual disposable income and it is high-time we began to work together just like the folks in Tulsa. Six hundred businesses in one municipality is huge, but we think it can be replicated all over – especially given 21st century technology. The key is teamwork. Remember, we don’t even have to like each other; but, if somebody is hiring people in our neighborhood, best believe we need to support that business!
