At the Beauty Concierge, we are all about helping beauties of color shop top-notch beauty services and products and fabulous fashion finds from great POC-owned businesses and brands. Which is why we were so excited to discover #ShopBlackWeek, an economic movement that asks consumers to support black-owned businesses for one week each November.
This year’s Shop Black Week has already begun; it officially started November 22nd and runs until Black Friday, giving a whole new definition to one of the biggest shopping days of the year.
Shop Black Week is anticipating the biggest year in its history. What began with 65 organizations in the US has grown to over 200 participating organizations, including the National Black Chamber of Commerce. It boasts more than 1.5 million members and subscribers and promotes black-owned businesses in dozens of categories from accountants to web designers. It’s currently set to be one of the biggest economic movements for black-owned businesses.
And people are paying attention. From major American media outlets like NBC, CBS, CW, FOX, and NBC to international outlets in Canada, Europe, and Africa, Shop Black Week is becoming a global movement in support of black business owners worldwide.
Shop Black Week makes it easy for anyone to participate:
Shop Black Week is aiming to generate a million references to the #ShopBlackWeek hashtag, pour millions of dollars into Black-owned businesses, and connect consumers with amazing products and services from black businesses.
