Remarks: Rev. Al Sharpton (@real_sharpton)
Our country is going through some tough times, but it is not the time for us to be lax and allow the government, alone, to write our narrative. The people who have paved the way before us have risked their lives, time and energy to provide us with the right to mobilize and be active. It’s our turn to take the wheel and drive our country to greatness; the question is – how?
We all often ask ourselves what we can do to impact change, to show our solidarity, to help our community grow and to make our politicians listen. Panelists will provide the advice you need to combat these trying times and activate real change.

Black Women control the majority of the $1.2 trillion in Black American spending. But how do we harness that power into a potential business, current ventures, and future investments? Listen as these powerful businesswomen share their personal financial journeys, keys to securing the bag, and gem drops on how to make their money work for them. These ladies will teach us to translate our hustler ambitions into financial gain and opportunity.
Faith is limitless, it’s the foundation and strength in all of our life’s experiences. But there are many times in our lives when we feel very disconnected from our faith and begin to question if we are able, if we can move forward, or if we can have joy again? These deeply-rooted women will teach us about using God’s Word as food to fuel and build your faith in all areas of our life.
