Entrepreneurs to Develop Blueprint for Black Economic Power

Dr. George Fraser, internationally acclaimed author of the classic work Success Runs in Our Race has once again tasked convening and facilitating the Issue Area on Socially Responsible Black Business/Economic Development at the State of the Black World Conference April 19-23, 2023, in Baltimore, Maryland. The global Conference is being convened by the Institute of the Black World 21st Century under the leadership of Dr. Ron Daniels. Dr. Fraser, Founder/CEO of Fraser Net and the PowerNetworking Conference is a strong support of Dr. Daniels and IBW and has facilitated the Issue Area on Business/Economic Development at each of the State of the Black World Conferences over that past twenty years.

“We believe in the amazing George Fraser because his vision and mission is consistent with IBW’s mantra of cultivating a culture of collaboration to heal and empower Black families, communities and nations,” Dr. Daniels explained. “George Fraser is the number one champion of networking and information sharing among Black people to develop a formidable base of socially responsible entrepreneurship in Black America and the Pan African world,” Dr. Daniels concluded.

Dr. Fraser has informed the organizers that his sessions will feature a major presentation on The New Black Wall Street by the Founder/CEO Lecester “Bill” Allen. IBW will present Mr. Allen with its Legacy Award during the major Plenary Session. An invitation has also been extended to one of the traditional Kings of Ghana’s five regions with the expectation that he will confirm. In addition, Dr. Fraser will unveil plans for the first Black Business Museum and Hall of Fame during the Conference.

“I’m so excited to be convening and facilitating the Black Business/Economic Development Sessions at State of the Black World Conference V”, Dr. Fraser said. “As Dr. Daniels has stated, this one is the ‘crown jewel.’ a truly global gathering of our people which will develop a blueprint for black economic power in the 21st Century,” Dr. Fraser noted. “I am encouraging Black professions in our network from the Baltimore, Montgomery, Prince George’s County and the surrounding areas to turn-out in force. We taking over!”
