Statistics continuously show that the Black population have tremendous buying power (Nielson estimated $1.7 trillion in 2017) yet very little money is spent with other Black business owners. Also, non-blacks have a perception that our products may be low quality or less valuable. Let’s strengthen our communities’ by enriching these businesses and building a network. Let’s bridge the gap between the black entrepreneurship and the black consumer.
