In recognition of National Black Business Month, Salesforce will host its second annual National Black Business Month Block Party, presented by BLACK ENTERPRISE. This year’s hybrid summit invites in-person attendees and online viewers to a half-day experience broadcasting live from Atlanta on Tuesday, Aug. 16.

Last year, the Webby-nominated inaugural event was a virtual success, featuring luminary speakers including Yvonne Orji, Baron Davis, performing artist, Wale, and more. This year, the conversation continues with panel sessions on building Black wealth in the new digital landscape. Summit programming also includes spoken word and live musical performances. Salesforce will offer a public livestream to the event, allowing viewers to engage from anywhere.

“The Block Party is Salesforce’s annual tribute to Black entrepreneurship and wealth,” said Shalaya Shipman, Senior Director, Strategic Business Development, SMB.

“This year, we are thrilled to host the Block Party in Atlanta — an epicenter of Black excellence, history, and futures.”
