A panel discussion on Economics and Black Wealth
This year, as the nation honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Howard University Alumni Club of Richmond and the Ebenezer Baptist Church College Ministry are coming together to sponsor a community discussion on the influence of economic power in the black community.
Jackson Ward was known as “Black Wall Street” in Richmond, VA prior to the 1950s. Black businesses thrived in this community and now there are few remaining black businesses in the Jackson Ward area. How do blacks in Richmond regroup and build a community of black economic empowerment to enrich the culture in our rapidly changing city?
Panel guests will seek to answer these questions, and more at “Living the Dream in 2017”, taking place Tuesday, January 17th, at 7 p.m. at Ebenezer Baptist Church, 216 W. Leigh Street, Richmond, VA 23220.
This community discussion is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Amie McLain Carter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
