(ATLANTA – March 15, 2023) – Well, folks – we’re headed to Atlanta on May 17th for Black Wall Street ATLANTA 2023. Because of COVID, we’ve not traveled to the ATL for a couple of years. However, we are headed back and this time, we’ll be just across the street from the Atlanta University Center.
In short, we celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. To date, BMORENews.com & BlackUSA.News have honored over 2,000 individuals in 9 US cities: New York, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Atlanta, New Orleans, Birmingham, Las Vegas, & Tulsa.
The goal is to help preserve little-known Black Wall Street history nationally and also to inspire entrepreneurship beginning in the Black community. We believe that the stronger Black businesses become, the more likely they are to hire more Black people.
Special thanks to Dr. Catherine Meeks, Dr. Tyrone Taborn, Morocco Coleman, Robert Scott, Rondy Griffin, and the Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing.
