TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY "BUY BLACK" EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVE KICKS OFF THIS WEEK!!!
Kansas City loves to talk about economic development and incentives but very little of the discussion is focused on improving business in the urban core. Thankfully, that's about to change.
To wit . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT AN IMPORTANT DISCUSSION REGARDING MINORITY BUSINESS IN KANSAS CITY AND THE UPCOMING "BUY BLACK" EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVE!!!
Here's a flier graciously forwarded our way . . .
Now, of course, there will be some petty bickering about the nomenclature of this initiative. But overall, this is a good idea for a lot of reasons but mostly because of something written in black and white on the meeting notice: "Black businesses are the number one employer of Black People in America."
Furthermore . . .
Helping to create jobs in the urban core is more effective than any anti-violence, anti-blight or even more education programs . . .
Notice the "rock star" lists of event sponsors . . .
The event is a
"Kansas City Black United Front Initiative"
A. Phillp Randolph Labor Council
Afrikan Village and Cultural Center
Black Healthcare Coalition
Kansas Black Chamber
Urban League Of Kansas City
The event takes place on March 21st. Click the image or this link for a bigger better view of the initiative.
And, again, while this might seem like an invitation to haters (it's not), we're highlighting this event because it represents a more practical approach to economic development in the urban core beyond corporate handouts for mostly white JoCo based biz that have reached near record levels in Kansas City right now.
