It's The Black Owned Network's favorite time of the year! Black History Month is here, and we're excited about celebrating the inspiration behind our company: Black business owners.
This February, TBON wants everyone in the community to support Black business owners by buying Black. Whether you buy a latte from a Black-owned coffee shop or purchase soap from a Black-owned beauty store, let's honor those who always keep us in mind and offer the best products and services for our community.
Check out three reasons why you should "Buy Black" this Black History Month below:
Circulates The Black Dollar
Black-owned businesses are one of the main contributors in circulating the Black dollar in the country. Although Black founders receive the least funding compared to their other counterparts, there has been a significant increase in consumers' support over the past couple of years. Purchasing power is essential in circulating the Black dollar, which helps put money back in our community.
Supports The Culture
Black people are some of the most innovative and creative demographic in the world. Almost every product they sell and advertise incorporates our culture in some way. Black business owners know just what we like and what products are best for us to celebrate who we are through skincare, clothing, food and more.
Celebrates Our Talents
There isn't anything in the world that we can't do, and one way our talents are displayed is through Black entrepreneurs' businesses. Black consumers can celebrate our gifts by buying Black and recognizing business owners' talents through their products and services.
