Why is there a need for a

Black Chamber of Commerce?

Representation

There's chamber of commerces for a wide majority of ethnicities. There's the Latin Chamber of Commerce, Asian Chamber of Commerce, the Finnish American Chamber of Commerce, Russian American Chamber of Commerce, Swedish Chamber of Commerce, and the list goes on. All of the chambers provide something important for their selected target audiences - representation. 

 

The Black Chamber of Commerce seeks to identify black businesses in the Manasota area and provide needed resources and representation for those businesses. There was no voice representing the specific needs or addressing the specific issues of the African American entrepreneur.  There was no entity encouraging direct interaction and trading within the Black Diaspora.
