National Black Business Month (4839 hits)


The best way to reduce the chronic disparity in unemployment rates between African-Americans and the general workforce is to increase the number of African-American owned businesses. That's the premise of National Black Business Month each August in which individuals and institutions are encouraged to visit at least one African-American owned firm each of the 31 days. The idea is to build a habit that lasts all year. The event was created by co-founders John William Templeton, executive editor of blackmoney.com and Frederick E. Jordan, P.E., civil engineer and president of the San Francisco African-American Chamber of Commerce in 2004. For more information, visit blackbusinessmonth.biz
