PN85: A Night with Black Owned Chicago Founder Tanikia Carpenter

6:00 pm — 8:00 pm

On November 8, Public Newsroom guest curator and author Rayshauna Gray will be in conversation with actress, writer and Black Owned Chicago founder Tanikia Carpenter. Black Owned Chicago was created in 2016 to be a resource for citizens of Chicago and tourists who desired to support Black owned businesses. Since then BOC has evolved to being the number one resource for all of your black owned Chicago needs by creating original content that highlights Black establishments and movements, creating a digital space for consumers to rate businesses, and producing events that entertain, educate, and encourage people to consistently buy Black. This is part of a series of City Bureau Public Newsrooms curated by authors Rayshauna Gray and Daniel Kay Hertz.
