During May 1-6, 2017 I Am Black Business, Inc. sponsored the Urban League of Greater Atlanta Young Professionals as they highlighted and patronized black-owned business owners and entrepreneurs in the metro Atlanta – Patronizing Through Small Business Week.
I Am Black Business is proud to serve as a partner and sponsor The Urban League of Greater Atlanta Young Professionals (ULGA-YP) Small Business Week. This gives both ULGA-YP and IABB the opportunity to highlight multiple black-owned businesses in and around the metro Atlanta area.
Black people, let's get it together and invest in our future. Whether it's time and money, you need to always consider how you can pay it forward.
Unfortunately, we find ourselves trying to encourage black consumers to buy black. I would strongly advise doing more research on the context in which the Negro Motorist Green Book was created. Let it be a lesson to all of us – black business directories are still a critical part of our culture.
