(BALTIMORE – Jan. 1, 2018) – The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA, now in its seventh year, may be producing an unprecedented Black Wall Street event. Established in 2011 in Washington, D.C., Bmorenews.com has expanded this entrepreneurs’ awards series north to New York City and southwards to Atlanta and even New Orleans. The Black Wall Street SERIES celebrates black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. To date, Bmorenews.com has honored hundreds in 5 US cities.
Today at Terra Cafe, Kelly Cross – who heads Old Goucher Business Association – introduced Bmorenews publisher Doni Glover to Donald Chang, Chairman of the Korean American Political Action Committee (PAC). Among topics discussed was the potential of the Korean American PAC and Bmorenews.com co-hosting a Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards ceremony to celebrate individuals – both African American and Korean – who are toiling to bridge the two communities.
Headquartered in Howard County, Chang’s group includes many Korean Americans who own businesses in Baltimore City. Chang also noted that he is a big fan of Yumi Hogan, Maryland’s first Korean American First Lady.
