With the current climate in the United States it’s becoming more and more clear that we have to band together for change. The Nielson Report puts black buying power at approximately $1.2 Trillion https://fortune.com/2018/02/28/raceahead-nielsen-report-black-buying-power/. So our dollars matter and they would definitely make a huge difference in support of black businesses. And if that’s just how much black people can bring to black businesses think of how much everyone else can. Therefore I thought it would be a great time to shine the light on some of the local businesses that you can support. Check them out below:
