#BlackAmbition Awards Celebration

Black Women are the epitome of BLACK AMBITION.  Our grandmothers could feed a family of 12 on a dime.  Remember Easter Sunday, when your mother managed to press and curl all the girls’ hair in time for church and still have a full Easter dinner on the table?

Black women have taken that same drive to the boardroom, the voting booth and beyond. The numbers of Black women wearing the entrepreneur crown are jump-starting the decline in US business ownership.

The Harlem Business Alliance is proud to honor these Queens that are redefining the definition of ambition.
