The African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey, Inc. The AACCNJ is dedicated to economically empowering and sustaining African American communities in NJ
(44)

Situated in one of the most densely populated areas of the country, New Jersey is home to some of the most talented, creative and innovative minds of our generation. Although it is recognized that one of New Jersey’s greatest assets is its diversity, the contributions of African Americans to New Jersey’s economy are often overlooked, particularly from an economic standpoint, due to assumptions and

stereotypes not grounded on facts. However, here are some solid figures to consider:

• New Jersey is home to approximately 66,000 African American owned businesses generating over $4.4 Billion dollars in annual revenues in services, retail, trade, transportation, communication, utilities and construction industries.1

• Among persons 25 years and over, the proportion of African Americans with a high school diploma or higher was 81.7% comparing to 88.2% of whites, as of 2006 – an improvement from 2000’s 74.5% African Americans vs. 84.6% whiles with such educational attainment.2

Despite these facts, the aggregate and sustained growth of African Americans has not kept pace with other business enterprises in New Jersey. Therefore, it is critical that AACCNJ serve as the mechanism for communication, program creation, and strategic implementation of resolutions that address economic disparities of African American business enterprises throughout New Jersey.

Singer Tracy Chapman became the first Black woman to win a Country Music Association award yesterday evening with her signature hit, "Fast Car," which won Song of the Year, 35 years after it was released.⁠

"I'm sorry I couldn't join you all tonight," Chapman, who could not attend the ceremony, wrote in a pre-written note read by presenter Sara Evans. "It is truly an honor for my song to be newly recognized after 35 years of its debut. Thank you to the CMAs and a special thanks to Luke (Combs) and all of the fans of 'Fast Car.'"⁠

Country singer, Luke Combs, covered the song helping it to climb the charts earlier this year. "I never expected to find myself on the country charts, but I'm honored to be there," Chapman told Billboard in July after her song hit No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart. "I'm happy for Luke and his success and grateful that new fans have found and embraced 'Fast Car.'"⁠


Congratulations to Tracy Chapman for creating a song that has withstood the test of time!
