Global Black Enterprise
Connect Locally and Globally

The internet is a vast territory containing millions of websites. Our job at Global Black Enterprise is to compile those black stories we think are relevant to uplift and motivate, and hopefully those reading will learn something in the process.

Compiler’s Biography:
My name is Colly A. Burke and  I am the compiler of this indexed newsletter. As a senior in high school I took international relations and I was hooked on how the world work globally. The previous 4 years the die was cast when I started reading the Wall Street Journal and eventually graduated to the Financial Times. Throughout the years I earned a couple degrees and started a couple of businesses that failed, but I never got globalization out of my blood. In 2010 I received my MBA from University of Phoenix in Global Management, and thought that it would be a great idea to cut through the internet clutter and give black people, those who are interested in global affairs the information that matters and hopefully make them  better understand, including myself aware of what is happening around us locally and globally. My intent is to  try and connect the links of where we as a people are heading and the path to getting their. Globalization is here to stay and the smoother the path can be made, the better it will be for all our people. I am developing a blog at http://www.globalblackenterprise.com and I am the owner of http://www.caribisle.net, where I sell products that pamper your feet.
