(TOWSON – September 16, 2023) – Please come out and join us for this very special edition of the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards at Black Wall Street TOWSON on Thursday, September 21, 2023, from 6 to 8 pm, at Mo’s Seafood located at 1528 E. Joppa Rd.
In short, we celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. Since its inception in 2011, we have recognized over 2,500 individuals in 9 US cities. Honorees receive the coveted Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award.
We aim to inspire entrepreneurship beginning in the Black community and help preserve little-known Black Wall Street history from a national perspective. BMORENews publisher Doni Glover wrote about this national and international perspective in the 2021 book “I Am Black Wall Street”.
Special thanks to Rondy Griffin and Sean Stinnett.
Honorees include Bianca Wise.
