In Celebration Of Juneteenth, National Buy Black Week Starts Right Now | Essence

Achieving economic freedom is no small feat but the Black Business Owners of Charlotte (BBOC) are determined to make a nationwide effort to do just that.

In honor of this year’s Juneteenth, BBOC is hosting its first National Buy Black Week with the goal of strengthening Black economic mobility across the country.

The campaign’s motto is “Igniting Economic Black Freedom” and will run from June 17 through June 23.

“As a culture, there is no time we pause and come together and say ‘Let’s support black businesses,’” said BBOC Founder Cathay Dawkins.
