For All of Us
The Utah Black Chamber was initially founded in 2009 by our Founder and President, James Jackson III to design a creative hub for black entrepreneurs, minority business owners, and their allies to build a network of community, resources, and funds that help the advancement of all minority-owned businesses; more specifically black-owned ventures.

"For me, my way of caretaking is bringing food to the community. If I’m having a hard day, all I do is remember what my grandmother did. I have to pull from that, from where I came from, to give me perspective and a goal for where I want to go. It helps energize me and give me that little bit of push."
