Grand Rapids Southeast side to become ‘headquarters’ for Black-owned businesses

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH — A man in Grand Rapids is leading the effort to turn the Southeast side into a hub for Black-owned businesses.

Jamiel Robinson, the Founder of the Grand Rapids Area Black Businesses tells FOX 17 that it’s all about creating opportunities and connecting those business owners with the resources they need to be successful.

Not only is the project giving GRABB a space to call their own, but will hopefully give others a chance to make their visions come to life.

The building that will be home to District 2012 on Eastern Avenue in Grand Rapids may not look like much now, but Robinson can slowly see his dreams, coming to life.
