Today on Real Talk with Rashad Richey we discussed the support of black businesses and if we, as African-Americans, should feel an obligation to support them. We brought on guests, Kevin Brewer, President of KMG Insurance Solutions, Reverend Frank Cornelius Brown, President of Concerned Black Clergy, Pamela Cross, VP, Sr. Community Development Officer at Wells Fargo Bank and Ricky Brown, CEO/Founder of Next Step Staffing.
Reverend Brown shared information regarding his “Financially Fit Seminar” that will take place Saturday, June 28th. The Seminar will be comprised of sessions that will educate goers on home buying, banking basics, growing small businesses and much more. Free breakfast and lunch will be provided. Additionally, the first 30 guests to come and complete the sessions will receive $25 gift cards. It will be located at West Hunter Baptist Church on Ralph David Abernathy from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
