Trevor Noah: African American

Celebrated as the most popular comedian in South Africa and the person who is about to replace John Stewart on the Daily Show, Trevor Noah takes the stage in “African American” to explore his often-bewildering journey of arriving in America and simply wanting to be “black.” Noah shares his perspective of growing up a mixed-race child under Apartheid, and fearlessly breaks down racial stereotypes on all sides by becoming what Newsweek calls a “cultural chameleon.”

Do you have a business that would benefit greatly with some extra financial help from a grant?

Today, Black women own roughly 14 percent of all businesses in the country owned by women, which tallies to around 1.3 million businesses, according to Huffington Post which also says,

“While nationally African American women comprise 14% of all women-owned firms, African American women comprise a greater than average share of all women-owned firms in Georgia (35%), Maryland (33%), and Illinois (22%).”

There are a lot of grants out there that get overlooked and while finding a grant specifically targeted toward African-American women can be challenging, the best way to bring in start-up funds is to look for funds targeted to minorities and women.

We at WatchTheYard.com suggest that you also look for industry-specific grants.

To help all of you small business owning ladies out there, we have created a list of small business grants for women.

Do you know of any good business grants for women? Tell us about them in the comment section below and share this list with an entrepreneur.
