BLACK WALL STREET BLACK
BUSINESS EXPO 2022
BWSBE 2022 hosted over 250 registrants and showcased over 50 black-owned businesses!
As a result of the social injustices that the African American community has been experiencing, many are wondering what can be done to affect change. Our proposed solution – re-placing the black dollar.
We’ve seen a plethora of companies make diversity and inclusion statements to show their solidarity with the African American community. However, it is ultimately in OUR hands to create opportunities for ourselves.
The Black Wall Street Black Business Expo (BWSBE), hosted by our charitable arm, The Financial Literacy Institute, Inc., was such an impactful event, we brought it back June 4, 2022 at The Westin Peachtree Plaza, Atlanta from 12pm – 6pm EST as an annual event that pays homage to African American heritage and highlights the excellence of African Americans that was exemplified through the existence of Black Wall Street.

kATHLEEN cOLLINS OF SEDUCTIVELY SWEET was awarded our first Black Wall Street Grant of $1,000 to further its business endeavors.
BWSBE 2022 was so impactful, we received a proclamation from Mayor EVELYN WINN-DIXON and the City of Riverdale making JUNE 4 “Black Wall Street: A Black Business Expo” Day.
We couldn’t have done this event without our sponsors, which included SLUSH, Kroger, NO CAP, UNCLE NEAREST.
