BLACK ENTERPRISE To Host Virtual 40 Under 40 Summit Celebrating Professional Black Millennials on Dec. 8

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, BLACK ENTERPRISE, the No. 1 Black digital media brand with 12 million unique monthly visitors, announced the virtual 40 Under 40 Summit hosted by Now and Later would return on Thursday, Dec. 8.
