Do you have an idea, skill-set or hobby that you want to monetize? Are you overwhelmed by the possibility of greatness? Don’t know where to start? Join Eli Micky (aka Elijah McKinnon) and McKensie Mack at Building Black Futures, a new event concept that explores money management, the art of negotiation (aka the scam) and realizing our value as makers, creatives, and leaders in our community.

Building Black Futures: Monetizing the Scam is for Black entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, aspiring business owners and hustlers like you’ve never seen it before. We’re not just here to talk about money. We’re here to talk about how we navigate systems that perpetuate poverty in communities of color and teach us to question our value. Arrive early for a complimentary libation but stick around for a lightning round of “Ask Me Anything” w/ a special “Black&Making Money Guest.

6:30pm – Doors Open
7:00pm – Intros / Workshop

This blackity-black program is brought you by:
McKensie Mack of 1989
Eli Mickyof People Who Care + Reunion Chicago
