On Dec. 15, Points of Light and Morehouse College held part two in a series about the quest for black economic empowerment where we will built on the historical context to explore leadership today in creating businesses and environments for success in communities of color. Attendees learned today’s strategies for using entrepreneurship and business ownership as a pathway for building economic mobility, and the session shared practical actions that individuals, community and business leaders can take to impact this critical journey to equity. If you missed part one, watch our November conversation to learn about the historical context of black economic empowerment.
