In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the civil rights movement (Brown vs. Board of Education), the summit convened a coalition of faith leaders, bank executives, business entrepreneurs and educators to promote financial literacy.
The two-day event — officially called the National Faith, Leaders, Educators, Small Business and Youth Conference — offered public workshops on faith-based community development, financial literacy, youth mentoring and higher education.
Operation Hope founder/CEO John Hope Bryant told conferees that without an understanding of how the world economy works, black people remain “economic slaves” in America.
