Our History

In 1998, the Nashville Black Chamber of Commerce was founded by Rosetta Miller Perry, publisher of the Tennessee Tribune and Contempora Magazine.  The organization was established in 1998 as a 501(c)3 not for profit organization.

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