Dozens of metro Atlanta black-owned businesses will be celebrated March 13 at a Black Business Showcase at the Porter Sanford Center in Decatur.
The “Reclaiming Our Roots Black History Celebration” starts at 6 p.m. with a Business Exchange Networking Reception.
It is presented by DeKalb District 3 Commissioner Larry Johnson in partnership with DeKalb CEO Michael Thurmond.
The “Historic Celebration of Black Businesses” starts at 7 p.m.
Alice Bussey, who is coordinating the event, says it will showcase the diverse black-owned and operated businesses throughout DeKalb and the rest of metro Atlanta.
“In addition, a list of these preferred businesses will be documented and marketed through DeKalb County and the state of Georgia,” said Bussey, who is co-owner of Bussey Florist & Gifts.
The Black Business Showcase includes an exhibit of limited-edition fine photography of former President Barack Obama taken by Pete Souza, his personal photographer.
