Serial entrepreneur, economic innovator, business developer, and a consecrated bishop from Atlanta, Rodney Sampson is bringing Kingonomics to Washington DC this month via a high-profile gala event called the “Emancipation of Capital”. This will be held on Thursday, the 22nd of August 2013, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
President Abraham Lincoln’s “Emancipation Proclamation”, which became law on January 1, 1863, marked the beginning of the freedom journey for African Americans slaves in the Southern States. It was a vital step towards the eventual outlawing of slavery and the conferring of citizenship upon blacks in America.
Kingonomics also celebrates the 50th anniversary of “The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom” which happened on August 28, 1963. During the historic march, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his historic speech “I Have a Dream” calling for the end of racism and discrimination in America with a major push for jobs and freedom.
This event is part of a 2-day series of events, which includes the Gala Reception on Thursday, August 22nd; “Kingonomics: Unlocking Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Investment and Crowdfunding Conference and Bootcamps” and an official ABC Shark Tank Casting Call on Friday, August 23rd. Kingonomics is divided into two main platform sessions including a boot-camp for startups, growth companies, investors and high tech innovators, crowdfunding, youth and young adults. Billionaire investor, Mark Cuban and David Weild, former Vice-Chairman of NASDAQ, are confirmed to speak and interact with registered attendees.
During the event, Bishop Sampson will unveil “I Have A Dream: A 50th Year Testament To The March That Changed America”, a commemorative photo-journal with famed civil rights photo-journalist and author, Bob Adelman, and the SCLC Poverty Institute.
