Norfolk, VA — On Black Friday, November 25th, a newly minted Black Chamber of Commerce named Black BRAND will ignite a powerful movement within Hampton Roads to honor local community leaders and successful black business owners at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in downtown Norfolk at 6 p.m.

The event, The Black Diamond Affair, will serve as the official launch of the organization to the public and is an all-black, semi-formal affair.

Black BRAND is a 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to promote group economics through professional development and community empowerment.

The Black Diamond Affair will welcome keynote speaker Maggie Anderson, author of Our Black Year and founder of the Empowerment Experiment, to lead a self-help economics address that will teach black business owners, consumers and community leaders how to empower struggling communities.

This highly anticipated presentation and organization will stimulate the black economic revolution and connect like-minded community leaders within a lavish environment while enjoying an evening of live music, food and fellowship.

“Our mission is to continue in the tradition of prior Black leaders, both locally and nationally,” said Blair Durham, co-founder and co-president of Black Brand. “We gratefully accept the baton they have passed, we are energized to work and committed to the relentless pursuit of a shared vision.”

Tickets for The Black Diamond Affair are now available along with sponsorship opportunities. For more information and to purchase a ticket, visit www.BlackBrand.biz or call 757-541-2680.
