The 2015 Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit ended with a 100th Anniversary Celebration & Awards Dinner with Music Legend Clarence Avant! The honorees of the hour also included another music guru Quincy Jones and Michael Lee Chin, CEO of Portland Investment Counsel.

Quincy Jones was unable to attend but the evening was still bright with a special dedication to Clarence by Ambassador Andrew Young.

Tatiana is the CEO of Sheascents LLC, a line of shea butter she created as a result of experiencing her own skin disease (eczema)!  I was so proud of this young lady and ALL of the other young entrepreneurs of the hour.

Sending a very special thanks to the Black Enterprise PR team for this amazing opportunity.  Enjoy the pics!
