BLACK CENTRAL reported, “There’s no way around it. The Black community is facing crisis. We know the headlines. Black unemployment is at its highest, and climbing. Our health, education, and economic statistics continue to occupy the bottom rung on any ladder to success. The truth is, we can turn this around with our buying power!”
“Our collective income has reached $1 trillion a year, but only 2-to-5 percent of that reaches Black-owned businesses today. Studies show that when Black businesses thrive, so do Black communities,” according to BLACK CENTRAL. I challenge you to support local black owned businesses, buy from online black businesses, and/or start your own black businesses.
