#BuildBlack    #BuyBlack #BankBlack

Buying products from #VerifiedBlackOwnedBusinesses is a direct way to keep our dollars circulating in Black community and build Black collective wealth. Around 41% of Black-owned businesses have shuttered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s important now more than ever that we support Black entrepreneurship and make sure these remaining businesses survive and thrive! We have to redouble our commitment to #BuyBlack. 

Additional products and resources can be found at www.webuyblack.com and on the Official Black Wall Street app.
