This era in history was about Black American Entrepreneurship

 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 

Black Label ComiCon's Mission is to Embrace Creativity & New Ideas

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. 

This Convention will Center around Entrepreneurship

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.  

Promote The Truth that "Black Dollars Matter!"

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.

Share with others the importance of this event and the meaning behind it!

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!

Black Label ComiCon is in association with Chocolate Nation Studios
