"I created the Wall Street Black Business Expo as a way to give black business owners exposure, provide information about resources to help with loss of business revenue due to cover."
This platform also is a way for my company Southern Tax Preparations and Services to be intentional about the social justice work we do in our community. "I hope this platform will allow our black businesses to get the resources, network and leave with key takeaways as to how they can sustain their business during this challenging time." said Founder of the Black Wall Street Expo, Jasmine Young
The calamitous massacre was a targeted act toward a thriving black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma from May 31st to June 1, 1921. The Black Business Expo will commemorate the freedom of African Americans on Juneteenth, pay homage to African American heritage, and highlight the excellence of African Americans that was exemplified through the development of Black Wall Street. Alongside the panel, attendees will enjoy shopping from local black-owned businesses, food, and entertainment for all ages to enjoy.
There will be one lucky business owner who will receive a $1,000.00 Black Wall Street Grant from the Southern Tax Preparations and Services.
