On this segment of Access Houston, KG Smooth welcomes back Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis. Commissioner Ellis is here to talk about the disparity study and Harris County’s inequality and inclusion problem, and how a disparity study and MWBE program are key tools for developing inclusive economic growth.
Our next conversation is with the founder of the Houston Black Heritage Festival, Mr. Richard Andrews and this event coordinator, Ms. Nicky Ferguson. HBHF is an all-weekend cultural experience that promotes diversity and cultural sensitivity filled with performances, art, guest speakers, exhibits, poets, crafts people and world-renown musical entertainers. This year’s Festival will take place Saturday & Sunday, August 11 & 12, 2018 inside the George R. Brown Convention Center and is expected to draw over 50,000 attendees!
