Power Network: A Black History Month Conversation

This Black History Month, the "Power Network: A Black History Month Conversation" returned to New York's historic Carnegie Hall to pay homage to Black excellence, creativity, and music, encapsulating the spirit of the month in a vibrant display of unity and empowerment.

The event, now in its second year, was built upon the success of its inaugural edition in 2023. The Power Network brings together influential figures and thought leaders who share insights and perspectives on driving real change and closing the economic divide.
