The Palm Beach County Chapter of Urban League Young Professionals (ULYP) will host New Black Wall Street: Entrepreneurship 101 on Tuesday, Nov. 21. This event will be held at the Harriet Himmel Theater (700 S Rosemary Ave.) in West Palm Beach from 6-9pm. This joint panel discussion and expo will feature presentations from experts in the marketing and financial arenas and wares and services from black-owned businesses.
New Black Wall Street is an event coordinated to celebrate the National Day of Empowerment. This initiative is recognized by ULYP chapters nationwide and serves as a day to engage in black empowerment in the areas of entrepreneurship and economics. Palm Beach County ULYP Chapter President, Peggy Laguerre says, “History has shown that black businesses have attempted to thrive in the past and unfortunate events have thwarted those advancements, so we’re sort of behind.” She believes that events like New Black Wall Street will help reestablish and “uplift black business and the black dollar.”
Vender spots for the event are still available for $25 for non ULYP members and $10 for members. Laguerre says she wanted to make sure that vending fees remained low to encourage attendees to buy black before Black Friday.
