An invitation to the community to be intentional about shopping with Black-owned businesses in Gwinnett County
The Gwinnett County Black Chamber of Commerce (GCBCC) has announced the launch of its “Buy Black Fridays” initiative, aimed at supporting Black-owned businesses in the area. The initiative kicks off on Friday, March 31, 2023, from 6-8 p.m. at Moe’s Soul Food Kitchen in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
The Gwinnett County “Buy Black Fridays” initiative seeks to address the lack of diversity in customers at Black-owned businesses. “When we go to white, Indian, Asian, Hispanic, restaurants and businesses, you will typically see a diverse group of customers — all races. But when you go to an African American or Black business, who do you see there as customers? You see only Black people! Why is that? That is because of racism and anti-Blackness,” said Cheryle Renee Moses, president of GCBCC. “We must change that.”
The Gwinnett County “Buy Black Fridays” is an invitation to the entire community to be intentional about shopping with Black-owned businesses. By doing so, the initiative hopes to support and strengthen the Black business community, which has long been underrepresented and marginalized.
The upcoming Gwinnett County “Buy Black Fridays” will be at the following businesses in Gwinnett County, Georgia. New businesses are added monthly to the every-Friday event.
