Support Black Owned Businesses

Few people realize the true spending power African Americans hold. According to Black Enterprise, the buying power of African-Americans was projected to be 1.1 trillion in 2015. A report conducted by the Nielsen company indicated that the average African-American income nationwide is $42,290. Calvin Harris Jr., president & CEO of the National Association of Black Accounts concluded about the study that “the African-American population is a tremendous financial asset to the country’s economic development”.

As African-Americans, we have the financial power to support and sustain our own community. By pouring money into our community we have the power to fuel more black owned corporations, creating more jobs and a true ruling power in this country.

  1. We are strong supporters of black owned businesses and encourage others to shop with them. We appreciate online marketplaces such as, We Buy Black that gives these businesses exposure to a larger customer base. Our sister company Accented Glory has a shop on We Buy Black and they’re our favorite store! Accented Glory is a handcrafted hair accessory brand for women that specialize in natural hair accents. They recently expanded their brand to jewelry and now offer earring designs.
