Why award only Black women recipients for 2020?

For African American female founders, research shows that the racial and gender wealth gap, in addition to negative bias and a lack of access to networks, creates significant barriers to success.

From Forbes magazine: The gap is widening between businesses owned by women of color and those owned by non-minority women. One reason so many of the businesses are micro is that many black women have difficulty accessing credit and face capital constraints, according to the Federal Reserve. That makes it hard to grow. And when black women try to borrow with lower income and lower wealth these factors make going for a loan that much more difficult.
Another factor that slows growth: a lack of educational resources and mentors to help black women entrepreneurs ramp up their business knowledge. In every major city, many black women cite a lack of mentors who understand their businesses and business models.
