Tennessee Black Pages passes the Torch

New owner and President, Tunisia Scott

Nashville, TN – Just as Nashville and surrounding areas undergo revitalization in historical communities, so does another Middle Tennessee staple. Tennessee Black Pages, a 25 year old Middle Tennessee minority business directory that lists and showcases local African American businesses, has officially passed the torch and been renamed, Tennessee Minority Pages by new owner and President, Tunisia Scott. Scott renamed the directory to service an even more diverse Tennessee than yesteryear.

The local directory was sold to Scott by former founder, Deloris Black who once hired the new owner as her Executive Assistant and Office Manager. Black’s protégé, Scott, will continue the founder’s legacy to bridge minority organizations to mainstream organizations and to the community at large. With the name change however, Mrs. Scott will impact a broader demographic.

Under her new leadership, Scott has launched a full campaign to update the look and the feel of the publication to accommodate the contemporary needs of today’s advertiser and reader. The publication will soon have an upgraded web presence as well as a full social media presence which includes: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, a Blog-site, an App and appearances at local events. These additions will exponentially increase the footprint of the publication’s featured advertisers.

Tennessee Minority Pages has officially moved out of the station to take itself and Middle Tennessee partner advertisers to the next level.

June 7, 2015 – The Tennessee Minority Pages had the honor to participate and witness a Phenomenal Movement! I was a guest of  Girls Reaching and Achieving Courage Everyday (G.R.A.C.E) created by Shawana Canty, a lady after my own heart. The selflessness that she displays and the passion she has for helping young ladies is so heartfelt! She hosted her annual G.R.A.C.E. Young Ladies Empowerment Conference this past weekend in Columbia, Tennessee.

She invited me down to talk about entrepreneurship! She addressed the issues of the importance of education, dealing with peer pressure, Health and fitness, preventing teenage pregnancy, just to name a few. She invited a long list of professionals with business backgrounds and education background ranging from bachelors degrees to Doctorate Degrees!

Encouraging these young ladies that they can be whatever they want to be! I am truly inspired by you Ms. Canty and please include us in your future endeavors it was a privilege and a honor!
