WASHINGTON, DC — Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon will headline a fundraising luncheon for Black Americans for a Better Future (BABF) on Tuesday at the Willard InterContinental Washington hotel in Washington, DC.
The event, “A Business Luncheon with Stephen K. Bannon: A Republican Vision for Minority Business Growth,” will see approximately 200 minority entrepreneurs from throughout the United States.
Bannon, who previously served as senior White House adviser to President Donald Trump and was the CEO of his presidential campaign, has stated that a large part of his vision for economic nationalism is helping extend opportunities to black and Hispanic workers.
“Steve’s knowledge of the black community is incredible,” Raynard Jackson, founder and chairman of Black Americans for a Better Future, told Breitbart News. “If you were Stevie Wonder, being blind, and you could sit and talk with Steve and didn’t know his color, you would swear he’s from the black community because of his understanding of the dynamic, the business and community dynamic.” Jackson recalled how the “first words out of Bannon’s mouth about the black business community was, ‘Your biggest issue is access to capital. That’s it. That’s the foundation of the issue.’” read more here
