The moderator is WKIM online radio founder Marsha Jews.

Harrington, Business Executive Pam Reaves, and Pierre Stewart, CEO of PSA. For the credit panel, speakers include Coppin Management Professor Hyacinth Ezeka, Baltimore City Comptroller Joan M. Pratt, Harbor Bank of Maryland VP Tiana Wells-Lawson, and Tammy Rollins of Rollins & Associates (REALTORS), Gentrification panelists include Attorney Alicia Wilson, Esq., Kelly Cross of Old Goucher Business Association, Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Todd Scott, and Harlem Developer Walter Edwards.

The final aspect of the summit is the networking, for this is where the magic really happens.
