Having grown up in a Black family-owned business, it has been ingrained in me since I was a child: good customer service; quality products; marketing, marketing, marketing!
As an adult, the Black Wall Street Movement by BmoreNews.com has been my mission: to celebrate Black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race. To date, we’ve honored nearly 1,900 individuals in 11 years in a dozen US cities.
The goal is to preserve little-known Black Wall Street history (get my book, “I Am Black Wall Street” on Amazon/Barnes & Noble) and to inspire entrepreneurship, beginning in the Black community.
We have $1.5 trillion in annual disposable income. Hence, there are at least 1.5 trillion reasons why we must support our Black-owned businesses. Why? Because nobody hires more Black people than Black people. Remember what Marcus Garvey taught us: to do for self. No one is coming to save us!
