(ATLANTA – April 30, 2023) – Be sure to reserve a seat for Black Wall Street ATLANTA on Wed., May 17, 2023, from 6 to 8 pm, in Atlanta at the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing located at 807 Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard Atlanta, GA 30314.
RSVP to https://blackwallstreetatl2023.eventbrite.com.
The event will feature the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards. Honorees include Willie Ricks and Paula Campbell.
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 2,500 individuals according to Joshua Manns, Owner, Legacy Awards/Joe Manns Awards.
These awards ceremonies have occurred in 9 US cities: New York, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Atlanta, New Orleans, Birmingham, Las Vegas, & Tulsa.
The awards are named after Josh’s late father, Joe Manns, who was a business icon in the Greater Baltimore Metropolitan Area because of his philanthropy.
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.
