Presented by our Partnership with the Brooklyn Historical Society

Untapped Cities Insiders are invited explore the rich history and social impact of businesses owned by and serving black communities in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Historian Jason Bartlett is joined by Cynthia Gordy Giwa and Glenn Alan of the online publication Black-Owned Brooklyn and Jyll Hubbard-Salk, founder of Crown Heights yoga studio Urban Asanas, to discuss the challenges and triumphs of the network of black business owners then and now, and how growing economic empowerment has tied directly to the struggle for equality. Moderated by Digital Editor at Black Enterprise and host of What’s Eating Harlem?, Selena Hill.

This event is presented in connection with the Brooklyn Historical Society’s exhibition, “The Business of Brooklyn.”
