Empowering Families, Communities, and Our Future Generations


The Dr Boyce Watkins Black Economic Empowerment Institute was founded within Simmons College, an HBCU in Kentucky built by proud former slaves who were determined to educate their own children. It is a partnership with The Black Business School that seeks to shift the thinking for the African Amerian community when it comes to wealth-building, entrepreneurship and cooperative economics.

The only way we can obtain true power in this country is by mastering the understanding of wealth, the accumulation of wealth and the protection of that which we've accumulated. It is only then that Dr King's dream will be realized. Much of the key to solving the problem of racism and inequality in America lies with developing a proper economic foundation through financial literacy, buying black and pushing our best and brightest to dedicate their lives to building institutions that sustain the masses rather than simply borrowing power from those who seek to oppress us. 

The great power shift in America will only occur when we begin to raise our children to be leaders, rather than followers. They must be entrepreneurs rather than employees, owners instead of renters, and producers instead of consumers. Over the next several decades, we will be traveling the globe to share the message of black economic intelligence and positioning the black community to be strong for the next generation. 

True and meaningful integration can only occur in this country if the black community develops a strong core for it's socioeconomic and political base. This is at least 50 years away, maybe longer, depending on how far and wide this message can be shared. 

That's what this tour is all about.
