We celebrate black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. Since its inception in Washington, D.C. in 2011, Bmorenews and its partners have recognized hundreds in New York, Baltimore, Washington, Atlanta and New Orleans with the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award. We do this in honor of those 10,000 African Americans displaced, at least 300 killed, and some 600 businesses destroyed May 31-June 1, 1921 in Tulsa, OK.
Last night’s event was at MIST Harlem and our hostess was Keira Wesley, a phenomenal woman.
Our honorees at this black-owned establishment in the heart of Harlem included:
Dallas Lee Bell
