(BALTIMORE – March 24, 2022) – In 2011, BmoreNews.com and Sisters4Sisters Network, Inc. joined forces to begin a Black business award. We held our first event in Washington, D.C.
The awards evolved into the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award where we celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race.
We aim to encourage entrepreneurship, beginning in the Black community, and help preserve little-known Black Wall Street History. This includes the history of Seneca Village in Manhattan in 1828 and Weeksville in Brooklyn, established in 1835.
To date, we have honored over 1,800 individuals in a dozen US cities, including a dozen or so in New York. This includes Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Harlem.
