The California Golden Tigers Basketball team formed an alliance with the Oakland African American Chamber of Commerce.
For quite some time, I have been looking for some way to help black businesses. Networking with business is extremely tough especially when you're in a city where black businesses are disappearing by the truckload. Then came a thought from television to support more black businesses.
I was thinking to myself why haven't I done this before? Contact the Black Chamber of Commerce. Initially I spoke with a very helpful secretary who more than convinced me that I was making the right decision. She told me all the benefits that the Oakland African American Chamber of Commerce possessed and their values matched perfectly with the American Basketball Association.
There are some major projects that ABA Chief Executive Officer Joseph Newman is working on for the American Basketball Association and one of the projects is to work with the National Black Chamber of Commerce. It is very important for the American Basketball Association to be diversified, especially given the current climate of the country right now.
Tune in to future posts to get the latest news on this fantastic journey. I hope you are excited as I am and have a great day!
