The Blackest Dollar Panel:

Tampa Bay to Celebrate, Unity, Reflection, and the Liberation of Black Culture




One of the key happenings during the Juneteenth Business Expo is the panel, “The Blackest Dollar Presented By Lynda Elle Public Relations”, which will happen from 1 – 2:00 p.m. and will include owners of local Black-owned businesses in the Hospitality, Entertainment, Sports, and Beauty industries and more.

“Brandi and I have created an unforgettable experience that brings together African-American businesses to network, sell, and showcase their local and global brands,” said Melissa Gardner, owner of Three Generations. “The celebration of Juneteenth creates a cultivating experience of love, laughter, unity, and most of all, the rotation of the Black dollar in our communities.”


Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19, 2022, is the oldest known commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. It marks the day in 1865 that enslaved people in Galveston, Texas, the last of the former Confederate states to abolish slavery, finally heard that the Civil War had ended, and learned that the Emancipation Proclamation had made them free nearly two years earlier.
