“Change in our community through the power of networking” – Black Business Works

One of the biggest problems we have in the black community is that we don’t know who our black business owners & professionals are. Black Business Works has created that place for you to come & meet likeminded professionals to share information, grow your business & much more.

Join us as we continue to work on bridging the gap by networking with likeminded business owners & professionals that want to see our communities improve by connecting with those business owners and professionals in our community.

We will be showing a two-minute trailer of the groundbreaking documentary film Bring Your “A” Game produced by Twenty-First Century Foundation (21CF) in partnership with actor-director Mario Van Peebles and producer Karen Williams. Bring Your “A” Game, which will air exclusively on BET in August 2009, is the cornerstone of a community engagement program that brings together resources and strategies from 21CF’s Black Men and Boys Initiative (BMB.) Using a cinematic style influenced by popular culture and employing innovative technologies, the film details strategies that have improved the lives of Black men and boys. It underscores how essential educational achievement and high school graduation are to survival and success in today’s world. Interviewees include such Black male icons as Chris Rock, Spike Lee, Dr. Cornel West, Ice Cube, Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Hill Harper, Geoffrey Canada, Bruce Gordon and more.
