Tiffiany Howard (Political Science) recently published the "State of Black Entrepreneurship in America."  The report evaluates the economic and entrepreneurial outcomes for African Americans in comparison to Black African and Afro-Caribbean immigrants, in order to provide a deeper examination of the influence social capital and immigrant background have on black business establishment, survivability, and growth in the United States. This research is supported by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation-Center for Policy Analysis and Research and the Bank of America. Last month she presented her report to a distinguished group of Congressional Black Caucus members, corporate executives, and local business owners and investors.
