Creating Profitable Entrepreneurs Since 1966
the Workshop in Business Opportunities.
Founded in 1966 in Harlem New York by Walter Geier and Mallalieu Woolfolk, the Workshop in Business Opportunities (WIBO) is a private non-profit organization that is committed to assisting men and women with the drive to become successful entrepreneurs.
WIBO’s mission is to enable small business owners and budding entrepreneurs from underserved communities to obtain financial success by starting, operating, and building successful businesses that develop economic power, provide jobs and improve communities
Our flagship program is the WIBO 16-Week Workshop, “How to Build a Growing Profitable Business.” Upon completion of the Workshop, WIBO Alumni have access to additional resources including business coaching, mentoring, webinars, networking, and other business support services. Since 1966, we have trained nearly 18,000 entrepreneurs who have created over 34,000 jobs.
We thank all the generous foundations, corporations and individual donors that support the WIBO mission and the amazing volunteers who make this great opportunity possible.

Merge talk (A session about the Creative Process and who to work with)
Greenwood is a historic freedom colony in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was one of the most prominent concentrations of African-American businesses in the United States during the early 20th century. It was popularly known as America's "Black Wall Street" until the Tulsa race riot of 1921
This comic convention will focus on Creators that have their Own Independent Properties, the courage to show their talents and ingenuity to our gracious attendees.
Black Wall Street was a thriving Black Owned Business Era. Now is the time to bring that philosophy back in a media style fashion. It's time to start teaching People of Color to own and operate businesses.
The Black American Dollar is a powerful force in the American Market Place. Black Americans spend ( 1.2 Trillion Dollars ) Annually in the United States and at the same time very little percentage of this currency returns back as investments for the Black Community. WE as a people need to learn how to invest into Businesses, Products, & Services that best represent People of Color and their needs. Black Label ComiCon is honored to be such a platform.
This is the first Comic Con of it's kind and the Black Label ComiCon Organizers Challenge You to SHARE this event with others. This event could change a person's life forever and that person or persons may possibly make a positive impact in your own community. Giving people the gift of Knowledge & Awareness is Priceless!
The Greenville Triangle is an Action & Adventure story that will center around the history and events of Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The story is written by Eric M. Cooper who is assisted by a team of illustrators that embark on a quest to present to the first ever 'Novic'. A 'Novic' in Eric M. Cooper's terms is a Full Text Story with illustrations in the beginning of each chapter, such as his other books in the past that he called 'Caption Novels'. He is now including Comic Book Pages in random areas of his next series of books that he themes as 'Novics'.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Les Price is an actor/stuntman whose body of work includes: "Alpha Zombie" in Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead; Free Meek, the Amazon Original Docuseries; Creed II; Death House; Elementary (TV Series); stunts and wirework on the One Plus 5T Android smartphone commercial; and voiceover/ narration of
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Les Price is an actor/stuntman whose body of work includes: "Alpha Zombie" in Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead; Free Meek, the Amazon Original Docuseries; Creed II; Death House; Elementary (TV Series); stunts and wirework on the One Plus 5T Android smartphone commercial; and voiceover/ narration of Highway 666. Recently, Les also worked with award-winning American inventor Garrett Brown, famous creator of the Steadicam, to test the new 'Zeen' Elevating Walker Chair - an game-changing solution for wheelchair and walker users.
Entertainment is in Les's blood: his father, Les Harrison, was Philly's longest performing drag queen. Known for his Shirley Bassey impersonation, Harrison was the first African American to break through the whites-only stage in the 1960's Vegas drag scene, performing with Elvis and for names like Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz. When Les wasn't watching his father perform or create stunning costumes, he was at his mother Franny's video store on Spruce Street consuming films with the same unrelenting hunger most kids reserve for water ice and soft pretzels.
Les's experience in everything from MMA to movies provided the tools necessary to explore many realms of the entertainment industry, including executive security/ celebrity bodyguard as well as traveling as a cosplay guest at national comic conventions. Due to his elaborate costumes and spot-on impressions, Les quickly became a fan favorite and was deemed " the man with a thousand faces".
In 2012, Les gained notoriety by becoming nationally recognized as Vin Diesel's double. Tapped to become a celebrity look-a-like, he began hosting red carpet premieres and making guest appearances as "The Fast the and Furious" franchise's iconic lead character "Dominic Toretto," before finding his calling as an action actor and professional stuntman. Les' next film, Alpha Rift, will be premiering this August at the historic Mann's Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard

When Damion Lopez wrote his book, The Knight and His Queen, he strived to make it one that would spark conversation. He saw the state of the world and wanted to show the ugly parts. To show strong female characters can have dimension and depth. Lopez spent his nights writing and building characters. All through his life, his love for stories has always guided him. From history to religion. History is the story of humanity, and religion is the stories that give us hope. We as humans have always looked to stories for lessons from the past. And a looking glass into the future. Now it’s time to evolve them. Stories and culture are what bring people together. From the different beliefs of how the world came to be. Lopez saw all the similarities and thought, If we all disappear, what would be left? This one question was the start. Lopez wanted to make that a story to look back on. Something that all people can see themselves in. He has constructed a tale to make the reader think, to ponder, to analyze our lives and the impact we have on each other and our planet.
