Press Release

St. John’s United Methodist Church Offers Free Financial Seminar
Author & financial advisor Pamela Ayo Yetunde to speak at breakfast seminar.

31 October, 2001 – (Oakland, CA) – Pamela Ayo Yetunde, financial advisor and author of financial books for African Americans, will speak at St. John’s United Methodist Church on Saturday, November 10th at 9:00 a.m (continental breakfast starts at 8:00 am). The breakfast is sponsored by the Women’s Ministry. In a talk titled, "Blessings in Disguise: Personal Financial Strategies for Securing Our Families & Building Our Community," Yetunde will discuss strategies for managing personal finances and "soulfully responsible" investing.

An investment consultant in San Francisco, Yetunde is the author of Beyond 40 Acres & Another Pair of Shoes and The Inheritance: A Stock-Picking Story. Yetunde was inspired to write financial books geared toward African-American families after she noticed a trend amongst her prospective clients.

"Generally, Black people were left at the station while white folks were investing and making money in a bull market," Yetunde observed. "I write books and speak to groups across the country to encourage Black people to do the right things to secure their future and our future as a community. As times get harder, we must be even more vigilant about what we do with our money."

Yetunde will appear at several events in Texas during the week:
