Black Wall Street RICHMOND Set to Honor Blogger James Pope, May 17th at Maple Bourbon (6 pm)

(RICHMOND – May 9, 2019) – Bmorenews.com, REAL Radio and partners invite you to join us at the expansion of The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA to Richmond, Virginia. On Friday, May 17, 2019 at 6 pm, area entrepreneurs and supporters will convene for Black Wall Street RICHMOND at Maple Bourbon.

Since 2011, Bmorenews.com and its Partners have been celebrating black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. To date, we have honored over 1,400 individuals in 5 US cities: New York, Baltimore, Washington, Atlanta and New Orleans.

RSVP for this historic event at https://blackwallstreetrichmond.eventbrite.com.

According to founder and publisher Doni Glover, “We are particularly proud to get this event on the calendar because Richmond is the home of a woman we absolutely adore and constantly mention, the iconic Maggie Lena Walker.”
He added, “She was the first woman of any race to charter a bank in the United States. Also, many, many thanks to our organizers in Richmond: Teresa Davis, James Pope and Janelle Harris. We are so grateful for these selfless individuals who exemplify the true Spirit of the Black Wall Street Movement. This is the type of collaboration that can change our trajectory as a people.”

On that note, James Pope is absolutely one of our honorees. How could we not celebrate “the man with the plan”?

Who is Pope?
Whenever he was told he couldn’t do what he set out to do, James Pope chased perseverance like there was no tomorrow. It is this determination that has taken him half-way around the world.

Having completed four years of active service in the United States Army Quartermaster regiment, clearly his military service is one of his life’s highlights. He’s service has taken him to several states across the country and also abroad to countries including Egypt and Mexico. As a result of his work ethic, he has been awarded two ARCOM Awards and two “good conduct” medals during his tenure.

A spiritual person, Pope has always yearned a stronger understanding of life and its purpose. Hence, he attended and graduated from Faith Landmarks Bible Institute.

As James Pope life continued to transition and new chapters unfolded, he still needed to be a voice. And that’s where his acting career began to unfold. He believes that his voice is his God-given tool that will ease the mind of those who are burdened and need encouragement.

Pope told Bmorenews, “I have a leading role in the web series ‘Julian’s Big Mistake,’ a story about love, forgiveness and raising awareness on autism.” He added, “I also am a Hip hop/rap blogger/analyst.”

On his YouTube channel, he covers the gritty entertainment of urban battle rap.

He said, “I analyze the content and give bar by bar breakdowns. I also do interviews to allow the audience to get into the minds of these artists. As a spoken word artist myself, I am fond of word play schemes and double-entendres that artists use when challenging their opposition.”
