The Birmingham Business Resource Center (BBRC) is partnering with Mastercard to showcase local businesses in collaboration with the World of Opportunity Vendor
Program, a division of The World Games 2022 Birmingham. In one month, countries from across the globe will get a taste of the Magic City, and the BBRC is ensuring visitors also experience Black-owned businesses by launching the Civil Rights District Marketplace.
This event will highlight Black-owned businesses, entertainers and artisans during a five-day festival. It will take place at the National Monument, Kelly Ingram Park. The historic park is the site of civil rights demonstrations and protests in the 1960s. The marketplace honors the trailblazers who paved the way for equity in Alabama and shows the world Birmingham’s progress. The marketplace kicks off July 8 and wraps up on July 16.
