One of the beliefs of Dr Boyce Watkins and The Black Business School team is that every black child should learn to start a business by the age of 12. More than football, basketball or any other extracurricular activity, black children are growing up in a world where economic forces are designed to keep black people oppressed. This leads to high unemployment rates and high levels of economic despair all throughout the black community.
The answer to this problem is entrepreneurship. If millions of our children are taught to start businesses as well as we play sports, we can create jobs instead of ask for them. We can own economic entities instead of serving entitites that are owned by others. We can employ the masses of our community instead of waiting for someone else to do the job.
In other words, we can be FREE.

I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
My PhD is in Finance, which I obtained from The Ohio State University. My masters degrees are in Mathematics and Statistics, which I earned at The University of Kentucky. I also received BA and BS degrees with a triple major in Finance, Economics and Business Management from The University of Kentucky.
I have been on the faculty at Syracuse University since 2001. Before that, I taught classes at The University of Rochester, The Ohio State University, Indiana University and The University of Kentucky. I've been teaching at the college level since I was 22 years old, and have mostly taught classes in Mathematics, Economics, Statistics and Finance.
I am the author of the following books: "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about College," "What if George Bush were a Black Man?", "Financial Lovemaking 101: Merging Assets with Your Partner in Ways that Feel Good," and "Black American Money."
Finally, I am the founder of the Your Black World Coalition, an organization and independent media outlet with over half a million subscribers worldwide. We have played a role in confronting destructive hip-hop music, and have also led campaigns on various civil rights issues in the African American community.
