In May of 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. addressed to the Negro American Labor Council stating, “there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.” From then to now our nation’s economic divide continues to widen. In his Nobel Peace Prize address he asserted, “There is nothing new about poverty. What is new, however, is that we have the resources to get rid of it.”. When we come back, we will learn more about the National MBA Association of Metro St. Louis. The organization who leads in the creation of educational opportunities and economic growth for African Americans through programs, partnerships and career opportunities in management.

Joining us today is Carrie Sanders, President and Desiree Adeboye, the Entrepreneurship Co-Director/ VP of Recording with National Black MBA Association of Metro St. Louis.

Meet the dynamic Genera Moore, founder and CEO of Motorparts Nation. If you look at Genera Moore’s LinkedIn profile you might not know that she is a St. Louis native. In fact, she is a global citizen. She’s journeyed from Atlanta to Dubai to Africa and back to St. Louis through industries ranging from entertainment to government to motor parts. She’s produced global entertainment events for the likes of Janet Jackson and Snoop Dogg. She cut her international business chops with a brokerage firm that obtained the rights for various luxury brands and brought their franchises into the Dubai market. She introduced the first Lexani luxury motorcar to the market and LXR&CO for women’s vintage hand bags. She moves mountains from whatever port she calls home. Cheryl and Christy catch up with her when she was in town for a little while. We get to take a ride with her as she shares her inspiring entrepreneurial story.
