January 23, 2018 (Chicago, IL) — The legacy of Black entrepreneurship is often untoasted and uncelebrated. WDB Marketing and BLUE1647 are changing that. The two companies will collaborate for the 2nd Annual L.E.G.A.CY. Awards to celebrate the impact of Black entrepreneurs on Saturday, February 24, 2018. The event takes place from 6p-10p at BLUE Lacuna Lofts, 2150 S. Canalport, Chicago, IL.
Together, WDB Marketing and BLUE1647 have worked with over 3,000 Black owned businesses throughout the nation, witnessing firsthand the enormous impact Black businesses are having in their communities. From job creation, to leadership, to generating hope – small businesses are integral to the growth of the community.
“Our city has seen tremendous economic growth in the last few years. Unfortunately, much of it has been concentrated downtown and on the near west and north sides,” says Keeana Barber, founder and CEO of WDB Marketing. “As black business owners, we’ve come to understand that we have to be the change in our communities. We have to buy homes and open businesses in our neighborhoods. And we have to make meaningful business connections with our neighbors.”
Five business owners and community leaders will be honored for building L.E.G.A.C.Y which represents Leadership, Education, Growth, Advocacy, Community and Youth. Awardees will be announced on January 29th.
New this year is the BLUE40. The BLUE40 represents a group of trailblazers that are making noise in their respective industries. In addition to Leadership, Education, Growth, Advocacy, Community and Youth this group of professionals are catalysts for social and economic change.
“We are thrilled to partner with WDB Marketing on this amazing event highlighting Black Entrepreneurs and change-makers,” says Emile Cambry, Founder of BLUE1647. “Being an award recipient last year and seeing the amazing turnout, we had to be a part of the 2nd Annual LEGACY Gala and we expect to have a night recognizing amazing people, but also use the gala as a catalyst to ensuring black businesses grow and thrive.”
The gala will feature a keynote address by Miko Branch, National Best Selling Author and Co-Founder of Miss Jessie’s LLC. As the pioneering brand of the natural hair industry, Miss Jessie’s disrupted the hair industry by empowering women of color to embrace their natural curls. And became the first black-owned natural hair product to make it to shelves of Target, Wal-Mart and many more.
