February 27th: Celebrate Black History Month with Tea Pad in Cambridge, Maryland!
Tea Pad celebrates Black History Month in Cambridge, Maryland - the perfect backdrop for our celebration of Black history in America as the birthplace of Harriet Tubman, famed conductor of the Underground Railroad. Cambridge was the stage for the launch of
the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.
Tea Pad celebrates Black History Month with Darryl Hill in Cambridge. Darryl has been breaking down racial barriers for decades and is an owner of one of the less than 1% of all licensed cannabis businesses which are owned by African Americans.
Darryl was the first black man to play football at Navy and one of the first to play at any military academy. He went on to play football with the University of Maryland as the first African American football player in any of the southern athletic conferences composed of formerly segregated white institution. After college and graduate school, Darryl was an early advocate of minority business enterprise. He became a ground-breaking businessman, with an entrepreneurial range that has included fine restaurants and green energy companies. In the 1990s, he also established businesses working in Russia and China. Darryl is the owner of medical dispensary Sunburst Pharm, located in Cambridge.
“Cambridge, Maryland is a majority black city that is rooted in Black history. It is the home of Harriet Tubman and a launching terminal of the Underground Railroad. It’s also one of the notable battlegrounds during the fight for civil rights in the 1960s. Cannabis is a new profitable industry which should accrue to the economic and social benefits of all sectors of our community.
I picked Cambridge for my dispensary, Sunburst Pharm, just for that reason. I wanted Cambridge which is under-served with high unemployment to benefit from the jobs and residual income that will emanate from medical cannabis sales. It is extremely important that minorities receive an equitable share of the economic and social benefit of cannabis and I am hereto fight for that. “
Join Maryland legislators, industry regulators and leaders for a night of live jazz, good eats, plentiful libations and provocative conversation on social justice in the cannabis industry with powerful industry networking.
