'We Practice Cultural Economics'
The ‘Black Friday Challenge
The last Friday of each month is designated as "Black Friday". On “Black Friday” EVERYONE is asked to Support a ‘Pan African American Business or Professional’. In the early 1900’s, the dollar circulated 36 to 1000 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the Black community; as was in the case in the prosperous historic Black Community of Greenwood, Oklahoma. Today, a dollar leaves the Black community in less than “15 minutes”.
Traditionally, it is said that retailers operated at a financial loss ("in the red") from January through November, and "Black Friday" indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or "in the black". In 2014, $50.9 billion was spent during the 4-day Black Friday weekend. The Pan African Cultural Heritage Society urges everyone to support a Black owned businesses on this one day of each month. We challenge you to support an African American owned business; restaurant, boutique, doctor, barber, artist, etc.
Support the “BLACK FRIDAY CHALLENGE” and Encourage African Americans and Pan Africans to start businesses to create jobs and build their communities. Business ownership equates to wealth building!
