Three local business owners help the Library kick off a new four-part series on how to make entrepreneurship in Kansas City more inclusive, diverse, equitable, accessible, and liberating – more IDEAL for all.

Joining the inaugural panel discussion:

  • Kemet Coleman, a local musician and part owner of Vine Street Brewing Co. in Kansas City’s historic Jazz District – the city’s first brewery run by Black entrepreneurs
  • La’Nae Robinson and La’Nesha Frazier, sisters who co-own Midtown bookstore Bliss Books and Wine, which was featured by Oprah Magazine as one of “127 Black-Owned Bookstores in America That Amplify the Best in Literature.”

Chelsey M, founder of Kansas City Black Owned moderates the discussion. The presentation is livestreamed at youtube.com/kclibrary (no RSVP necessary).
