“When you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go farther, go together”

At U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. – The National Voice of Black Businesses, our mission is to provide committed, visionary leadership and advocacy in the realization of Black economic empowerment. Through the creation of resources and initiatives, we support African American Chambers of Commerce and business organizations in their work of developing and growing Black enterprises.

As the pandemic devastated our country, our organization was on the front line in the battle to provide the knowledge, resources, and advocacy to help our businesses pivot and thrive throughout the pandemic and beyond. Our work and impact could not be possible, without our talented and dedicated staff who are all committed to seeing Black businesses succeed. Our team is inclusive of black professionals and entrepreneurs who are the driving force behind the success that our members have experienced.

We are proud to introduce to you the Team behind USBC and learn about the benefits of membership.
