For many years there has been discussion about the lack of entrepreneurial spirit in the black community (versus other ethnic groups). Efforts to "buy black" rise, then fade, even though in our connected society, world-class black owned businesses are just a click away.

This discussion link is a brainstorm to encourage action and cooperation. What are your ideas for building and sustaining a prosperous black entrepreneurial class with the objective of growing generational wealth?
