Challenges Still Exist For Black-Owned Businesses Says African-American Chamber

Jun 6, 2017

The African-American Chamber of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. 

A lot has changed in the past two decades when it comes to the successes of local African-American businesses but, as the Chamber's President and CEO Eric Kearney explains, there is still a long way to go. He says one of the greatest challenges that still exists for minority business owners is access to capital.
