    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.
