In 1998, the Nashville Black Chamber was founded by Rosetta Miller Perry, publisher of the Tennessee Tribune and Contempora Magazine.  The organization was established as a 501 (c)3 not for profit organization.  “The Black Chamber of Commerce was established to economically empower and sustain African American businesses through entrepreneurship and capitalistic activities,” said Rosetta Miller Perry, founder.

In 2003, the Chamber was re-chartered as a 501(c)4 organization.  This re-chartering allows the Chamber to function as a Civic Association with members who support its mission and goals.

Today, Nashville's business community is bold, innovative and knows that by working together we all have a better shot at success. Today the Chamber is comprised of 250+ members including corporations, small to medium businesses, non profit organizations and individuals. We're growing and hope you'll join us to see what we're all about at one of our networking meetings soon. Better yet, become a member
