Thousands of corporate executives, minority entrepreneurs, and community leaders are expected to attend the Wall Street Project Economic Summit, which will take place in New York City on February 16–18, 2016.

The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, who with the Citizenship Education Fund founded the Wall Street Project in 1996, says the Project encourages Corporate America to recognize the value that minority entrepreneurs, vendors, and consumers bring to the marketplace and ensure equal access and opportunities for culturally diverse companies, consumers, and employee.

“The Wall Street Project is not an end in itself, or a means to an end, but an evolutionary process,” says Rev. Jackson. “The road to shared economic security travels through two-way trade, where all are included and none is left behind. Just as America did not realize how good professional sports could be until athletes of all colors could play, American business will not maximize its growth potential until all businesses have an equal opportunity to compete on an even playing field, where the rules are public and the goals are clear. That is the goal of the Wall Street Project.”

Rev. Jackson announced that he has named Wall Street veteran Maxine Leftwich as executive director of the Wall Street Project for 2016. “Maxine understands the issues and challenges that African Americans and other minorities face on Wall Street and throughout the corporate world, for the finance industry has been her life and career,” he says. “She is ideally suited to guide us in tackling today’s relevant issues so we can forge ahead and break through the barriers that we as a people face.”

Good stuff, thanks for the drop ... For some reason, this makes me think of Black Wall Street (Little Africa). Hopefully, this action could possibly lead to a resurgence, similarly experienced in Tulsa, Okla.

I hope so. But, doesn't it seem like it's always AAs trying to create bonds with other minorities? Am I missing something?

Certainly not, you aren't missing a thing, and this proves your point:


says the Project encourages Corporate America to recognize the value that minority entrepreneurs, vendors, and consumers bring to the marketplace and ensure equal access and opportunities for culturally diverse companies, consumers, and employee.


So, now we are going to Corporate America and almost begging them to recognize us as potential partners. Look, listen, e'er body knows that black folk spend money, religiously. Even Black Wall Street makes the case for us. But as you say, here we are again, trying to bond, rather than stepping out on our own.

But nevertheless, this move is something in the right direction.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
