Love it or hate it, ATL is movement central. Dr. King was an international figure but he set up his Southern Christian Leadership Conference headquarters in ATL. The center of Black scholarship in America is a consortium of institutions of higher learning, all clustered in Atlanta — the Atlanta University Center. Atlanta also happens to be the place where the annual We Buy Black Convention is hosted. The movement today isn’t sitting at lunch counters or in the front of the bus. This is bigger and it’s all happening in ATL.
Will you be at the We Buy Black Convention this year? The Convention is taking place August 23 through the 25th in Atlanta and you need to be there. Black entrepreneurs from across the country will be pitching their businesses on spot — think Shark Tank but more like, “Pitch Black!” Entrepreneurs will also be receiving FREE business consulting at the Convention. There will be business workshops, activities for children and some of the finest Black owned businesses from across the country on site vending. All of this is taking place not for show but to advance our movement as a people. We are “Setting the Precedent for the Next 400 Years” and it’s happening in ATL.
We are just a couple of weeks from the Convention. If you haven’t made plans yet, it’s about that time. Let’s keep this movement going strong. True freedom is within our grasp. True liberation is right in front of us. Atlanta is movement central and at this year’s Convention, we are keeping that tradition alive.
