  1. Hello,
    My name is Perriee Williamson and I am wondering how do I, as an African-American woman with a Bachelor’s degree, get a job in corporate America jobs that only require a high school diploma.

  2. Thanks for this wonderful resource. I agree this will help us to think about supporting Black businesses, although many of these are construction industry companies, which means the average consumer will not liaise with them. I would have loved to have seen World Pac Paper on this list. I also would love to see a resource of all Black-owned businesses in the area. I can think of accountants, doctors, lawyers, organizational trainers, bookstores, etc., as well as nonprofits that would be great resources for everyone to know about and support. Thanks again!
