AFRICANGLOBE – A coalition of Black media owners, professional and political organizations are calling on African American consumers across the nation to begin immediately to redirect a minimum of $20.00 per week in spending to Black-owned businesses.
The initiative being called “The Million Dollar Black Spending Power Campaign” is being organized by local groups in a number of key cities. It’s projected that even with minimal support this effort may turn one million dollars per week back into predominantly Black communities throughout the country.
The initiative is the brainchild of Bob Law, longtime radio personality, entrepreneur and community activist, who recently sent an open letter to the Congressional Black Caucus, highlighting the assault on Black-owned radio and requesting the CBC to bring the matter to the attention of the FCC and the full Congress.
