Shop Black Small Business Weekend will take place at the historic Scarritt Bennett Center. Scarritt Bennett Center is a nonprofit conference, retreat, and education center in Nashville, TN. Our mission is to create space where individuals and groups engage each other to achieve a more just world.

Owned by United Methodist Women, their campus is formerly home to United Methodist-related Scarritt College for Christian Workers (1924–1980) and Scarritt Graduate College (1981–1988). Today, Scarritt Bennett Center works to continue on the powerful legacy of the Scarritt students, faculty, and staff in the fight for women’s empowerment, racial justice, and dignity for all.

We look forward to seeing you!
