‘NOT A PENNY’ FOR NON-BLACK BUSINESSES
On July 7, across the nation, people are being asked to only shop in stores owned by blacks. Not Hispanics, Asian-Americans, Indigenous people or single moms. Not gays or transgenders.
The Alaska Black Caucus reminds Alaskans that Tuesday is #BlackOutDay2020Alaska, “an opportunity to stand in solidarity with Black people as we work to eradicate racism by using our economic power.”
“We’re asking everyone to not spend even a penny on July 7 unless it is with a Black-owned business. This is an opportunity to make a statement in support of Black-owned businesses and Black lives.”
According to Investopedia, there were over 2 million African-American-owned firms in the United States in 2017.
Alaska black-owned businesses are listed at the Alaska Black Business Directory.
