Black History Studies in association with BWE International presents
An Audience with Black Wealth Expert Dr Boyce Watkins
Thursday 12th October 2017 @ Hackney Attic
Black History Studies presents 'An Audience with Black Wealth Expert Dr Boyce Watkins' live and direct from the USA.
Dr. Boyce Watkins is traveling the globe encouraging Black people to leave the corporate plantation and start building Black Wall Streets worldwide. Black Economic Empowerment is the new civil rights movement of the 21st century. Black Economic Empowerment is a collective effort, by millions of Black people who wish to take control of their economic future, as well as that of their family, and the Black community. The event will start with the screening of Black Economic Empowerment documentary 'Black Friday: What Legacy Will You Leave?'
In "Black Friday: What Legacy Will You Leave" Ric Mathis examines the Economic Psychology of African Americans spending habits and the importance of leaving a Legacy. These financial and psychological factors have contributed to African Americans transferring a small amount of wealth to the next generation. However, these are the same historic stories that can inspire us to break down such economic barriers and recycle the $1.1 Trillion dollars that leaves our community annually. It is imperative that we begin to discuss such things in order to ignite change in our spending habits that will allow us to leave a lasting legacy for our children.
Featuring Dr Claud Anderson, Dr Umar Johnson, David Banner, Hill Harper, Cynthia Bailey, Judge Hatchett, Jacob York, A.J Johnson, Chike Akua, Ona Brown, Johnny Gill, Dr George Fraser, Mike Roberts, Eric Thomas and Lynda Harris.
The screening will be followed by a keynote address by Dr Boyce Watkins, a meet & greet, booksigning and much more...
