  1. Good day all,
    Per the discussions, I am pleased that so many of us recognize that pursuing a Black Economic Summit is an idea whose time is overdue. To that end, this outlines five key points that we need to review at the organizational meeting. The importance of agreeing upon the key points will keep us focused and provide a vehicle for us to narrow down our priorities to those that will have both an immediate and long term impact.

    1. An action oriented statewide Black Economic Summit. The key word is “action” along with “economic”.
    A. Bring economics to the forefront with emphasis on Black owned business development to build and sustain wealth in our communities
    B. The action will be the outcome of addressing the barriers that limit our access to existing economic tools. That means that we must impact policy by creating action plans that address: politics/politicians, existing laws and the legal system, banks and banking laws, entrepreneurial education and education in particular. This includes intentional policies that must be exposed and remedied with measurable accountability.

    2. Creating a database of Black African American owned businesses in all areas of the state. Until partnering becomes a natural behavior, this must be facilitated by assisting businesses in developing collaborations that allow them to grow.

    3. Timing. BRAC is here and we must ensure that there is a positive economic impact on the Black community and Black owned businesses.
    We must make sure that there are mechanisms in place to connect Black owned businesses to the opportunities that are becoming available. It is imperative they are informed and ready to compete, particularly with respect to necessary paperwork and clearances.

    4. Sustainability. Train aspiring business people who have the initiative, aptitude and the dream but lack the means.

    5. Accountability. Develop our own, and support candidates who have Black owned businesses and the quality of life in the Black community at the forefront of their agenda and will be accountable for such. We must emphasize the quality of life in the Black community so that the thinking is not limited to adding more police presence, for example, but rather focusing on the economic, education and health issues that have a negative affect on the quality of life.

    I am looking forward to working together to make this happen. Working alone, this could be a daunting if not impossible task. Working together it is imminently doable. contact
