Ain’t I an Innovator examines the Six I’s of Black innovation theory that centers Black women as change agents. This will be examined through the context of social innovation and entrepreneurship as Black women are the fastest-growing demographic of entrepreneurs in the country.
Unpacking this phenomenon demonstrates the innovative and liberating power Black Women have always possessed. In addition, highlight how Black women are utilizing social innovation and entrepreneurship as a tool to fight back against systemic racism by reclaiming economic autonomy through business ownership to create social change. The framework will be demonstrated by tracing the lives of historic Black Women.
