We’ve read stats showing that Blacks have a buying power of $1.2 Trillion dollars and that Black women are starting businesses at a faster rate than any other group, but is this enough to change the economic inequalities that plague Black neighborhoods? Mandy Bowman discusses how it’s time to focus on creating and supporting Black businesses to build long-term/generational wealth. Mandy Bowman is the Founder of Official Black Wall Street and the Social Media Manager at Essence Magazine. With a deep-rooted passion for all things social media, entrepreneurship, and Black culture, Mandy has worked tirelessly to empower and support Black entrepreneurs through her digital platform and Black business directory, Official Black Wall Street. When she isn’t working to fuel Black businesses through the Official Black Wall Street platform, she is volunteering as a mentor to inner-city students and creating social strategies. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
