2017 Black-Owned Business Holiday Gift Guide #BuyBlack

I love the holidays. It’s a time for family, reflection and shopping. During this time of the year, we should remember how much our spending can positively affect Black owned businesses.

The total Black spending power is on its way to a record $1.5 TRILLION by 2021. Keeping this in mind, Black people are currently at a unique place of power—at the intersection of commerce, culture and consciousness. As the holidays approach (21 days until Christmas and yes, I’m counting) let’s make it a point to #BuyBlack this season and invest our holiday money into our own communities.
