(LUTHERVILLE – October 24, 2018) – There was a heap of energy, even for a Saturday morning in Lutherville. It was a continuation of The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA by www.BMORENEWS.com and its Partners that was established in Washington, D.C. in 2011. Since its inception, the Bmorenews Family has honored well over 1,000 black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race.
Bmorenews publisher Doni Glover said, “We do this in honor of the 600 black-owned businesses that were destroyed May 31st-June 1st, 1921 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.” He added, “If African Americans could build America’s most successful black business district in 1921, imagine what can be accomplished today. Right now, we have over one point four trillion dollars in annual disposable income. This means that any black-owned business today with a decent product or service and excellent customer service ought be able to be successful.”
Saturday’s (10.20.18) event at Mano Swartz Furs brought out a hefty crowd. Owner Richard Swartz was clearly the “life of the party!” Filled with such a vigor for people, Swartz invited Bmorenews to host this business networking and awards event at what is the oldest furrier in America on Falls Road in Lutherville.
