St John's University Black History Month Interview

We’re so impressed with the work ethic and energy of Kirrick Wise, founder of his Kool for Life brand, we invited him to be interviewed at our second St. John’s University discussion. We had a spectacular time revealing the process of starting and running a business, along with how to overcome the obstacles we face due to our race, socioeconomic status and access to opportunity!

Our Mission

In One Sentence: To Build Black Wealth!

There are so many social issues to address. The black wealth crisis is the most unaddressed social issue in America, even among those fighting racism. We leverage skilling, entrepreneurship and ownership to increase wealth generating activities. A lack of wealth is the root cause of so many racial issues. We are excited to show the world how increasing black wealth improves black life!

Our First Program! July 2020
