African American Chambers of Commerce vital to rebuild Black America Nationally (1551 hits)

Black Businesses are growing nationally in the Black Community, and African American Chambers Commerce across the nation are at the forefront of building Americaís next movement. Black Business organizations have their roots in the National Black Business League founded in 1900 founded by Dr. Booker T. Washington.

The National Black Business League founded by Dr. Booker T. Washington predates the U.S. Chamber of Commerce by twelve years.

In 2010 the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. a regional Chamber of Commerce in New York was founded by its Founder, John L. Scott. The Island African American Commerce is currently rebuilding the social fabric in its region to strengthen trade, provide access to capital, advocate on behalf of small business owner, and provide resources to Black Business Owners.

U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. is doing a marvelous job supporting African American Chambers throughout America by providing top notch training at its USBC School of Chamber & Business Management.

The above chamberís models needs to be duplicated throughout Black America.

Many of the social ills in society can be solved by raising the level of economic parity in society. It is said that economics affect every area of a personís life.

Black business matters, and so does viable business organizations such as local chambers of commerce. It is a well-known fact that chambers of commerce in local communities are comprised of some of the most connected individuals in their regions across the nation.

The civil rights movement has certainly impacted and created change across a wide segment of the American Population. Economic parity remains a lofty goal across America and local chambers of commerce are gearing up to help small business owners in their respective communities become viable increased capacity building, access to capital, advocacy, technical assistance and providing a network of support.

As evidence of this pattern recent statistics show that African American women business owners are leading the pack as one of the fastest growing business segments in America.
