It's high time we stop waiting for a seat at the table.
Blackout Friday has been a vision of mine for years now and I'll be super proud if you'll help me execute this! Year after year we see people rushing out, lining up, and trampling over each other as they bombard stores for Black Friday deals. Each year, I sit back and think of the impact we could make on the Black Community if we spent this same energy supporting our own businesses. With all that's been going on we must keep the momentum and make supporting Black-owned business FIRST, a way of life. Why? Because we need economic power in order to effect real and permanent change. Blackout Friday is a call to Black business owners and consumers to join together once again as we help circulate our Black dollars within our own communities.
So how do we do this? It's simple. If you're a Black business owner work with us and our partners to promote your Blackout Friday specials. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified of future plans and special events surrounding Blackout Friday. Think of your offers and plan for them in advance. Be sure you're able to supply your demand and fully satisfy your customers. If you're a consumer be diligent in getting this information out! Download and share the flyer with your friends and family members and encourage them to do the same.

BE THE CHANGE
Be The Change
For too long, we continue to fall victim to a majority with malicious intent which has been evident for centuries. It's time we stop doing the same thing expecting different results. After all, that is the definition of insanity. We can not depend of the hands that beats down to feed us too. It's time to be informed, proactive, and unify. It's time to strengthen the socioeconomic status of the Black Community and it must start with us!
