Black Business Month in Birmingham



INTERVIEWS. WELL, THIS WEEK, THOUSANDS OF REPORTERS, ANCHORS, MEDIA MANAGERS ARE IN TOWN FOR THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK JOURNALISTS. AS WVTM 13 INTERN JADA DANIELS EXPLAINS, THE CONFERENCE RELIES ON BIRMINGHAM BUSINESSES TO MAKE IT SUCCEED. BLACK BUSINESS OWNERS ARE BUSIER MORE THAN EVER AS AUGUST KICKS OFF BLACK BUSINESS MONTH AND THE NABJ CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD RIGHT HERE IN THE MAGIC CITY JUST THIS WEEK, WE HAD SEVERAL PEOPLE REACH OUT TO US THAT WERE PART OF THE NABJ CONFERENCE. SO WE ACTUALLY HAD SOMETHING EVERY NIGHT THIS WEEK THAT WE’RE ACTUALLY DOING SOME CATERING AND SOME DINNERS FOR THOSE.

FOR Y’ALL TO BE HERE IS SAYING IN A WHOLE LOT. BERNADINE BIRDSONG SAYS OWNING MICHAEL’S RESTAURANT IS A FULL CIRCLE MOMENT.
