Top professionals from Sports, Music, Film, Radio, Television, Fashion, Business, Technology and Finance will attend the two-day conference.
Two intriguing panel discussions highlight the weekend’s schedule as William Rhoden, author of “Forty Million Dollar Slaves” will take to the stage for a panel debate on the past, present and future of African Americans in sports, entertainment and corporate America. The second panel discussion, “Ode To Black Press” will celebrate the role of African Americans in media.
The weekend culminates with a chic, red carpet gala that will be held at the Roosevelt’s famous Tropicana Pool. MTV’s Wild N’ Out Star Nick Cannon will host the poolside gala that will be set in an “Old Hollywood” theme.
The highlight of the gala is when BSAA Chairman and CEO Andre Farr will honor Quintin E. Primo III, Chairman and CEO of Capri Capital Advisors, as BSAA’s Entrepreneur of the Year; William Rhoden as Journalist of the Year
