(BALTIMORE – March 23, 2023) – We are on a roll here at BMORENews.com! The Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards are in full effect these days. Last week, we hosted Black Wall Street HOODFELLAS at 7 N. Calvert Street inside the Munsey Building. Honorees included Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, a huge fan and customer of HoodFellas Bistro. Also honored were Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby and State Sen. Cory McCray.
This week, we hosted Black Wall Street BALTIMORE COLLEGIATE at the Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys.
During Black History Month 2023, we hosted Black Wall Street BALTIMORE at Terra Café Bmore, one of our go-to spots that always gives us love no matter what.
Earlier in February, we linked up with Dr. Tyrone Taborn and the Metaquake Conference to do Black Wall Street DMV at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC NW. This was a homecoming for us as we hosted our very first business awards in the District in 2011 with the help of Sisters4Sisters Network, Inc. (S4SN).
S4SN is led by Peggy Morris; her beautiful network has also given us unconditional love for a very long time. We are so ever grateful for people like Morris and Dr. Taborn. You cannot buy such loyalty.
And in January, we hosted Black Wall Street MLK – once again, at Terra Café Bmore, 101 E. 25th Street.
In April, we will be in New York City for Black Wall Street HARLEM, and in May, we will be hosting Black Wall Street ATLANTA.
We celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. Our aim is to help preserve little-known Black Wall Street history nationally and to inspire entrepreneurship, beginning in the Black community.
We believe that as Black-owned businesses grow, they are increasingly more likely to hire Black people.
To date, we have honored over 2,000 individuals in 9 US cities including New York, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Richmond, Atlanta, New Orleans, Birmingham, Las Vegas, and Tulsa. Famous honorees include the late Mayor for Life of DC, Marion Barry, R&B singer Raheem DeVaughn, and D.L. Hughley.
Former Maryland Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford said that nobody hires Black people more than Black people. With that in mind, we will continue to host these awards across the planet.
Many thanks to Lee Vaughan, Rondy Griffin, Joe Manns Awards & Trophies, Dr. Taborn and so many others. Without them, there is no us!
