On Saturday, June 18th from 2-5pm, join Impact Ventures, COSIGN Magazine, & Community Partners for a Juneteenth celebration and FREE community screening of Boss: The Black Experience in Business. Hosted at the Cedars Alamo Drafthouse, attendees will have access to theatre food menu, the exclusive film screening, and panel discussion featuring local business leaders forging the future of Black Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, the film brings the largely unknown stories of enterprising African Americans to the forefront. This documentary traces the lives of African American entrepreneurs over 150 years, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of million-dollar empires.
“We are bringing the community together to reflect on the entrepreneurial history of the Black community. This story, which many do not yet know, covers the triumphs in the face of violent adversities,” CEO Benjamin Vann said, “This Juneteenth weekend, we are commemorating the emancipation of the enslaved while celebrating the remarkable stories of successful Black entrepreneurs since.”
The event is hosted in partnership with The Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce, The Dallas Weekly, Inner City Development Corporation, ThinkThreeMedia, Mogul Millennial, Veteran Women’s Enterprise Center, Dallas Free Press, and others. Hosting events like this helps Impact Ventures strengthen connections and relationships within communities which uplift, inspire, and educate on the latest trends, opportunities, and resources.
Media and Community Organizations interested in partnership for the screening can sign up here.
