We each are concerned with the rapid increase in gentrification, and steady decline of the presence of black business in Charleston and surrounding areas.
The goal is to come together, pooling our knowledge and resources, and purchase land that we can build on and use for the black community and black business. On the way to reach our goal and beyond that, we hope to restore faith and confidence within our community, and entrepreneurs, about black business and their undeniable potential for success.
