With the recent protest uprisings across the country, we’ve noticed also that Black Owned Businesses or “BOB’s” and solicitation of them in local communities are TRENDING in many of our timelines.

Currently the estimated $1.1 Trillion dollars that Blacks spend only stays in our community for only an estimated 6 hours. Could you imagine if that money was recycled back into our banks and businesses?

By educating both consumers and businesses the importance of balance trade, the black dollar will reduce unemployment and increase wages. The goal is to strategically identify businesses and organizations that support Black initiatives and support them.

We’ve gathered a list of black owned businesses in Atlanta for you to research and support.
