The State of Black Wealth: Detroit Female Entrepreneurs are at it AGAIN

Y.A.B. is back at it again with a new event series hosted by Bamboo Detroit!


This event is a collaborative event wtih Nana Dansoa, founder of State of Black Wealth and host of WCHB Radio’s Talking With Nana Show to tackle the disparities of wealth amongst women of color. Although Black women are excelling in small business and education, there is still a disparity when it comes to building generational wealth in high numbers. With Y.A.B. specifically being an advocate for women of color stimulating the business economy, we alongside Nana Dansoa, would like to use this event to be an inspirational resource to show that there are businesses in the financial assets realm that are thriving as well as provide a networking opportunity for Detroit women.
