As part of our ongoing One Million Black Women series, Melissa Bradley, entrepreneur, professor and founder of incubator 1863 Ventures, talks about how the new American majority is a powerful engine of economic growth.
On America’s history of denying economic opportunity: If you think about the history of capitalism, it was never meant to include people like me as asset holders. I was an asset.
On the economic potential of America’s new majority: Do you really want to live in a country where you have, historically, marginalized the new majority that we have cost the economy $16 trillion of missed revenue?
