Black Domers: Pioneers (Part 2)

Black @ ND is a talk show that will discuss the experiences, successes, and challenges of the University of Notre Dame’s African American students, current and alumni, and the steps taken to survive in a community that lacks representation of color. It is our job to discuss the difficult topics and have honest perspectives followed by ways of improvement with aims to build a better community. For today’s topic “What Does it Mean to be Black at ND?” host Emorja Roberson ’17 is joined by Don Wycliff, David Krashna, Ben Finley, and Percy A. Pierre.

Breaking Down Barriers to African American Entrepreneurship

On Tuesday, June 30th the IDEA Center at the University of Notre Dame hosted a webinar conversation on how to break down systemic barriers around African American entrepreneurship. More specifically, our panel of speakers discussed what barriers exist for Black entrepreneurs (and why); what needs to be done to increase Black entrepreneurship; how models of Black entrepreneurship might look different from what traditional models expect; and how Notre Dame, other universities, investors, politicians, and attendees of the webinar can support these efforts now.
