Collective Empowerment Group Honors Black Press Columnist Clingman

The board of directors and the members of the Collective Empowerment Group (CEG) honored James Clingman at its 20th anniversary gala in Bowie, Maryland, on Dec. 3.

Clingman, economic empowerment writer, speaker, teacher, and Black newspaper columnist for nearly 30 years, received the Chairman’s Award from the CEG, for which he has staunchly advocated for nearly two decades.

“Of the many awards I have received in my lifetime, this one will always remain at the top of the list,” he said. “It was given by a group of people whom I have come to know and love. I truly appreciate their sincerity and love for me and my family. What a blessing to have blessed people bestow such an honor.”

Clingman is primarily responsible for establishing the Cincinnati chapter of CEG in partnership with Pastor Tracy Ventus of New Mission Baptist Church in Madisonville, and several other founding member churches. Eugene Ellington, pastor of Inspirational Baptist Church in College Hill and current president of the Cincinnati chapter, was in attendance at the anniversary gala.

The CEG, formerly known as the Collective Banking Group, focuses on financial literacy, education, health care, homeownership preservation, public safety and public policy. The new name demonstrates the CEG’s expanded role in “building a healthy and empowered church, people, and community.”
