We’re lucky to have a calendar jam-packed with amazing events in our city, but this event is one you really can’t miss. The Modern Green Book’s (TheMGB) 2nd Annual Culture and Community Fest is mixing fun with an opportunity to discover Black-owned businesses in our city.

“We have a small Black business grant that we’re starting in the Fall. I wanted something that highlights and amplifies our mission—which is to support, lift and celebrate Black-owned businesses and the communities they serve—with the fun twist of a fundraiser. This event will help support our new grant program.”

What is The Modern Green Book?

2020 Samford University grad Theo Edwards-Butler saw a need for a community that celebrates, uplifts and supports Black-owned businesses. So, this young professional stepped up and started The Modern Green Book as a way for people to find and learn about Black-owned businesses and organizations in states all over the country. It’s also a resource for these businesses because it gives them the tools they need to grow and thrive.

“It’s for everyone to use as a resource. Yes, we list and find resources for Black-owned business., but we are for everyone to use because it’s important that everyone plays that role to support Black-owned businesses.

The beauty of Black businesses is that they’re in the hearts of every kind of central community within a city and they are the ones that are putting money back into it.”
