International Black Hair Summit: "The Business of Black Hair"

International Black Hair Summit: “The Business of Black
Hair”

This powerful gathering will happen for 3-days, from October
22-25, 2014 in
Montego Bay, Jamaica. The venue is the Montego Bay
Convention Centre.
There will be presentations, panel discussions, and lots of
networking.
We will showcase our hair, our fashion, our style, our
culture
and we will make a difference.

1.       Consider
the following points:

2.       Korean
domination of Beauty Supply Stores and the retail side of the business

3.       Major
multi-national corporations like L’Oreal and Revlon dominate the manufacturing

4.       Distribution
is concentrated with retailers like Walmart and the Korean-owned beauty
suppliers

5.       Wholesale
distribution of products is dominated by non-Black owned businesses

6.       Government
imposing burdensome and unnecessary licensing requirements on natural
hairbraiders

Collectively these realities attack our cultural legacy, our race-esteem and our ability to provide financially for the future 7 generations.

These are global issues for the Black community. Imagine what else we could do simply by taking control, ownership and direction of this vital economic, business and cultural institution.
