Al Sharpton And Highly Regarded Speakers Converge On The Cincinnati State of the Black Culture Event


Cincinnati, OH ( -- Vibe Cincinnati, presented by the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau and The Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky African American Chamber of Commerce, has announced The State of Black Culture, July 23, 1-3 p.m. at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. The free event will feature Andre Perry of the Brookings Institute speaking on the "Devaluation of Businesses in Black Communities," followed by a keynote address on the "State of Black Culture" from the Rev. Al Sharpton.

"The State of Black Culture will explore the lifestyle, development and ethnology of our communities, families and businesses. It presents a unique opportunity for businesspeople, entrepreneurs and those who wish to start their own business to learn more about the challenges that face Black businesses and the solutions that can lift our region as a whole," said Eric Kearney, president and CEO of the African American Chamber.

"Black people represent 12.7 percent of the U.S. population, but only 4.3% of the nation's 22.2 million business owners. Nearly 96 percent of business owners in the United States are non-Black people. Mr. Perry and Rev. Sharpton will show us hard data as to why - and what we can do as a community to develop the next generation of business owners and leaders.
