The Kansas City Call newspaper, the oldest black newspaper west of the Mississippi River which will be celebrating its 104th year of publication in September 2023, has joined in a partnership with the Cascade Media group, owned and operated by Carlos Nelson, to regularly present news information surrounding African-Americans both in the Kansas City metropolitan area but also from around the United States about issues facing our people. This partnership is a one of a kind agreement where we inform communities of color about individuals and issues facing the Black culture.
Today, Tracy Allen, the editor of the Kansas City Call newspaper interviews Arielle Nash. Many of you may know her name. She is the daughter of former City Councilman member Troy Nash. Ariel and her father Troy own and operate a real estate affordable housing development firm. They have several projects in Kansas City and St. Louis. She recently completed an internship for Artemis Real Estate. This is the Pritzker family that owns the Hyatt. Artemis Real Estate Partners is an investment manager based in metropolitan Washington, D.C., with offices in New York City, Los Angeles and Atlanta. Artemis has raised $9 billion of capital across core, core plus, value-add and opportunistic strategies. The firm makes equity and debt investments in real estate across the United States, with a focus on multifamily, industrial, office, retail, hospitality, senior housing and medical office. Artemis specializes in joint venture partnerships and direct investments.
She was recommended by one of the senior executives from Blackstone who serves on the SEO Board of Directors, which is an organization put together by all the private equity, hedge fund managers, and investment bankers as a pipeline for minorities to enter wall street. It’s kind of cool that a local African American woman, a 23 year old gets such an opportunity.
Let’s learn from one of our millennials about investments and real estate among other topics.
