Black History Month celebrates Black accomplishment in every arena. When President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, he reflected upon it as a time “to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor.”
And so, this Black History Month, SBA Delaware joins with the Delaware Black Chamber of Commerce and the SBA-funded Delaware Small Business Development Center’s Community Navigator Program to celebrate Black-owned small business success here in the First State with three panel-discussion-centered Black History Month events —one to be held in each of Delaware’s three counties. Each event will bring into sharp focus Black-owned small businesses’ resilience, fortitude, and future-facing resolve, as well as the small business-building resources that can help secure success. Registration for these free-of-charge events is open to the public. Delaware small businesses, community stakeholders, and all other small business supporters are invited to join to hear from the panels and participate in networking.
