BBEC: From Black Wall Street To Today: It’s Time To Address The Systematic Devastation Of Black-Owned Businesses

THE BBE COMMISSION IS A NATIONAL ORGANIZING ENTITY FOCUSED ON THE ECONOMIC HEALTH OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY

The systemic and institutionalized racism stemming from centuries of Chattel Slavery, Jim Crow and Segregation continues to have a devastating impact on the Black community.

THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW!

How is it that after 400 years, and ‘so-called’ progress, 40 million Black people hold less than 2% of American wealth? The ‘why’ and ‘how’ is well documented. As we look forward
into this century, BBEC envisions a national movement focused on the economic health of the Black community.

WE COME FROM A TRADITION OF ECONOMIC SUCCESS

In the spirit of Madame C.J. Walker, James Forten, Annie Malone, Samuel T. Wilcox, Clara Brown and countless other successful Black entrepreneurs whose names we will never know – it is up to us to keep the movement going!

Be sure to join us on June 27, 2020 at 12 noon when BBEC holds its first ever National Town Hall. Stay-tuned for details.
