We Buy Black Convention 2019 Set to Go!
We Buy Black Convention is an innovative concept for black sellers and shoppers to connect. It provides a platform to learn, talk about black history and shape the future. We Buy Black is one of the biggest online marketplace promoting black-owned businesses can own online stores, get noticed and sell globally. It is more than just about selling black but more of a movement centered on promoting black entrepreneurship and economic dignity.
The primary goal of the convention organizers is to ensure a higher percentage of the $1.3 trillion black spending power remains within the black community. Unfortunately, only about 2% of the sum remains within the black community. Other ethnic nationalities thrive in keeping the dollar circulating within their communities for days to weeks. But it only takes as little as six hours to see the dollar leave the black community.
The US Department of Justice records shows blacks have the highest crime rate for 2016. But the We Buy Black convention is a vehicle to help black-owned businesses have a higher market share. This move will help empower more African Americans, build a decent life and reduce crimes for centuries to come. There are loads of black-owned businesses manufacturing similar high-quality goods as those of other minorities; and We Buy Black is where to find them.
