Black Male Achievement Conference 2015:
Black Men and Black Money
In Omaha, Nebraska
By Dell Gines, Volunteer Chief Operating Officer: Black Men United Omaha
June 12, 2015
This June, in Omaha, we will be holding the second annual Black Male Achievement Conference. The topic of this conference will be Black Men and Black Money. In this conference we will talk about Black money from a variety of points of view. These include economic development, education, our brothers returning from incarceration, money management and relationships.
The question though is why Black men and Black money? To answer that I first have to eliminate some confusion about what money really is. Most people think the end goal is to "get money". Lord knows we have enough of our artist selling us on getting money. We live in an American system that seemingly worships money. But the objective to get money is really not about money at all. Money is simply a road to something else.
Money can get your family economic security and let you provide in the way you want to for your kids. Money also can be a vehicle to help you empower your community, get politicians elected, build a new way of life for your people. Some people say money makes the world go round. Not true. It is what we do with our money that makes the world go round.
So when we talk about Black men and Black money, we have to ask ourselves do we as Black men really know three important things. Do we know how to get money as a Black community in general and Black men specifically? Do we know how to management money when we get it? Are we using our money to the benefit of our community and our families when we have it? Unfortunately in many cases, the answer is no, no and no.
Did you know according to a Neilson marketing survey on Black consumers that Black's in America have over $1 trillion dollars in purchasing power? We make enough in America to be the 16th largest economy on the planet. The problem is that we very rarely invest it in creating businesses in the community, saving it or investing it or giving it to good causes in the community. We spend it.
This is why we are having a Black Male Achievement conference on Black men and Black money. When we achieve by learning how to control our economic resources, it empowers us to build for our families and our communities.

This coming fall, on the first day of school, in 600 cities across the country, one million fathers will take their children to school!
We need your support to make this year's first day of school the best ever!
We are kicking off the preparation for that crucial first day in a special way this year, by participating in the Dad's Honor Ride.
