Meet Dr. Kenneth L. Harris on the Diverse Business show. He is known for his maverick-style in his approach to altering societal and economic challenges within his community.

An avid reader and socially-conscious individual, Kenneth has always been passionate about helping African-Americans and other minorities realize their dreams, most importantly through entrepreneurship and economic empowerment. He found it necessary to bridge the gap between minority-owned businesses throughout the region and founded the International Detroit Black Expo, Incorporated (IDBE) on May 24, 2004.

The Detroit Black Expo (DBE) is the largest African American Consumer Expo in the State of Michigan featuring more than 200 black-owned businesses, 500 conference attendees and 2,000 consumers. The DBE “Economic, Networking and Entrepreneurship Conference” provides attendees with education, resources and networking opportunities.

The DBE also highlights, showcases and promotes African American businesses throughout the black Diaspora.

But, more importantly it’s an unique opportunity for corporations to reach the African American business community and target demographic of choice. DBE is mission-based and market driven.
The Detroit Black Expo is the official conference of the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce, Inc. & supported by the MMSDC.
