In Chicago, a collective of Black business owners gathered on a commercial strip in Chatham Monday morning to urge their colleagues and customers to cast ballots on Election Day.

Whitney Hampton, the owner of A Progeny Global, a real estate company in south suburban Oak Forest, said candidates who support local businesses and promote racial equity should be given the most consideration at the polls.

“We must be the change that we desire,” Hampton said. “Never doubt that a small group of like-minded citizens can change the world. It really is the only thing that ever has. Be the change you desire.”

The news conference was held on a busy strip of Cottage Grove Avenue that’s home to host of small businesses, including a beauty supply shop, a martial arts studio, a financial services office, a day care, a Jamaican cuisine restaurant and a doughnut shop.
