12 min read

On Thursday, February 24, SBA hosted an online event to celebrate Black History Month.

The event featured a conversation with SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman and Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jr., President and CEO of the National Newspaper Publishers Association, on financial wellness, creating generational wealth through entrepreneurship, and the importance of increasing equity and access to opportunities to help uplift and support Black-owned small businesses.

There also was an audience Q&A where Dr. Chavis was joined by SBA’s Chief of Staff Antwaun Griffin and SBA St. Louis District Director Maureen Brinkley to discuss SBA initiatives and resources that support existing small businesses and new startups as they pivot and grow in a post-COVID world.

The event was moderated by Kendall Corley, the SBA’s Deputy Chief of Staff of External Engagement.
