OkayAfrica's 2018 guide for you to #BuyBlack this Friday.
Thanksgiving, the "holiday" that kicks off the holiday season in America, is literally around the corner. Aside from asking yourself where the time has gone, the day after can be a frenzy in of itself, where folks scramble to shop at a discount. But for some in the community, Black Friday is the chance to spend with businesses who need the boost the most—the black-owned ones.
Although we don't need to dig into the "why," it's still imperative to support our own—this week/holiday season and beyond. FUBU (for us, by us) is still the motto—these businesses are well on their way to continue to build wealth in our communities, provide opportunities for employment and/or partnerships within our communities, as well as produce products that put black folks first. What could get better than that?
OkayAfrica curated a shortlist of black-owned brands to take note of this Black Friday—check them out below.
