For industry and company leaders, CEO Alexandria Carroll says to put your money where your mouth is by giving more marketing, media, and PR opportunities to Black businesspeople. Converting that so called "spending power" into real economic power in politics, agriculture nationwide and community by community, building the necessary institutions, owning the properties and businesses in our own communities, banking etc.
So if white people have a way to share happy celebrated moments by sending greeting cards, why would not their black counter parts want the same. Every Black (African American) person who has a checking or savings account should transfer their money to a Black owned bank.
Internet pay giant, Paypal , has now stepped forward condemning the systemic oppression and unveiled its plan to support black businesses and help them thrive. I am honored to highlight the significant role that African Americans have made in shaping our economy through entrepreneurship and community investment.
Black business directory listings are online compilations of different minority-owned businesses in a number of different fields. It has always been harder for Black people in the U.S. to start and grow businesses — harder to get loans, harder to get investors, harder to access lines of credit.
This list of black-owned businesses will showcase the contributions of the black community in the business world, and the stories of the black entrepreneurs featured here may also give you some inspiration to start a business of your own. On May 30th, we committed to putting $1 million to work : $500K in donations to organizations fighting racial injustice, and another $500K in the form of grants to Black-owned beauty businesses.
