The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA (Est. 2011) was founded in 2002 in West Baltimore’s Sandtown community. From the very beginning, we have maintained a 5-point agenda that includes, but is not limited to:
*Public education
*Ex-offender services
*Affordable housing &
*Universal access to healthcare.

In 2011, Bmorenews founded The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA in Washington, D.C. whereby we recognize black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. The goal has always been to help increase entrepreneurship, especially in our target African American community. To date, we have honored hundreds in 5 US cities: New York City, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and New Orleans.

Ultimately, we’d love to spread this initiative across the globe. Why? We see entrepreneurship as a viable means for a person to improve the trajectory of oneself and one’s community.
