In this installment of Practically Speaking, we talk about how Localism and Entrepreneurship can help build Minority communities.

First, host Audra Wilson sits down with Stephanie Hart, owner of Brown Sugar Bakery in Chicago’s Chatham/Grand Crossing area. Ms. Hart talks about her struggle to build her business in an area that is underserved by banks… and why she stays.

Then Audra speaks with Emile Cambry, one of the founders of Cibola, a creative entrepreneurship incubator in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. They are helping to build the city’s next generation of business owners and tech entrepreneurs of color.

Last, we hear about the seldom-discussed history and significance of African-American names.

Catch fresh episodes of Practically Speaking Saturdays at 1pm CST on Vocalo.org (89.5fm and 90.7fm in Chicago), with a rebroadcast Fridays at 11am.
