African-American Entrepreneurship with the Altitude Accelerators

Lenoir-Rhyne University Asheville is excited to host The Martin Luther King, Jr. Association of Asheville and Buncombe County for a celebration of Black History. Join us in welcoming a group of young men known as the Altitude Accelerators as they make a special presentation about the history of local African-American entrepreneurship. Musical accompaniment will be provided by the Community Outreach Choir.The Altitude Accelerator Program is composed of young men who will be forming their own businesses through a Buncombe County grant-funded program. Part of their training is to research the history of African-American entrepreneurship in the Asheville area. The nine minority males have been hand-selected for the Altitude Accelerators program. In addition to presenting about local black business pioneers, they will tell attendees about the businesses they will be creating during their time in the year-long program.

This is a free event and is open to the public. Please RSVP:
