WE COME FROM A TRADITION OF ECONOMIC SUCCESS

In the spirit of Madame C.J. Walker, James Forten, Annie Malone, Samuel T. Wilcox, Clara Brown

and countless other successful Black

entrepreneurs whose names we will never know, BBEC celebrates Juneteenth 2020.

The Negro has been inflicted with 244 years of slavery and 100 years

of segregation. And so with the legacy of these two unjust systems facing him, it is only natural that he is way behind. And he has been out of the mainstream of American life, he has been on the periphery of American life for all of these years. And it would really be a miracle, that history hasn’t seen for someone to start exactly 344 years behind in a race and get ahead or catch up—unless something special is done. We’ve had special treatment in the negative sense for

344 years. Now we’ve got to get special treatment in the positive sense, in order to catch up and improve these lagging standards.

“…it is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. As so we’ve come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.”
– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
