Black Prosperity: Achieving the Unfulfilled Promise of Economic Equity

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 (8:00 AM - 10:00 AM) (EDT)

Description

More than 60 years ago, Rochester embarked on a bold experiment to create companies owned, managed, and staffed largely by African Americans that would uplift the broader community, but the promise of “Black capitalism” fell short.

Join us on Wednesday, June 15th from 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. for a two-part panel examining Rochester’s history of discrimination and exploring the ways in which we can ensure equity for African American workers, business owners, and entrepreneurs.

Pricing

Tickets are $20; no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Scholarships are available.
