SXSW 2021

A Black Wall Street for Education

As we debate how small businesses and major corporations rebuild the economy, the impact of ensuring the economics of running an education system through recirculating education funding within the Black community should not be understated. Whether its contracts for busing, food catering, cleaning services and supplies, professional development, school supplies, landscaping, building maintenance & construction, and education technology, there is wealth being created in predominately Black school systems with or without the Black community benefiting.
