June 19th marks the day when Black Americans in Galveston, Texas, were finally freed. Now we celebrate Juneteenth as America’s true independence day and honor the remarkable strides and contributions the Black community has made since.

 

In this intimate roundtable discussion, hear how these Black entrepreneurs show the world how they’ve redefined it for themselves in 2022—and discovered its deeper root: an interdependence with their ancestors, their community, and the success they’re forging for tomorrow.  

 

 

Meet Abigail B.
