Things weren’t supposed to go this way, not according to my editorial calendar. This was supposed to be a buildup to Thanksgiving week. I was working on fun, lighthearted posts about recipes and Black Friday deals. Yay! Shopping! And now, none of that seems right anymore. Not after Ferguson. On Monday November 24th, in an evening announcement that seemed poorly planned to say the least, it was announced that the grand jury did not indict Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown. What does that mean? That means that Darren Wilson gets to walk free, after all of the protests and righteous anger and calls for justice. CNN predicts there will most likely be a more stringent federal probe and a wrongful death lawsuit – click here to read their predictions. For the black community on the ground in Ferguson as well as in major US cities like NYC, Los Angeles, Washington DC and Chicago, it meant protesting in the streets and making our voices heard in the dead of the night. And so many of us are now left wondering “now what?” How can we express this rage and this pain caused by a system that is broken, a system that fails to value our lives as equal? How can we speak truth to power and have the hope of making some kind of difference, some kind of essential statement that proves that we have value greater than what society seems to perceive?

The overwhelming cry I’m seeing from my online community is BOYCOTT. Some people are calling it BLACKOUT Friday. Some are calling it Black Owned Friday. Some are using the hashtags #NotOneDime, #HandsUpDontSpend, #BoycottBlackFriday, #BrownFriday and #ShopBlack, others have adopted the slogan No Justice, No Profit. No matter what you call it, the sentiment is the same and the statement is clear. Economic activism is a time-honored tactic that notably proved effective during the Montgomery bus boycott.  It is a way to send a message to the government, big business, all while simultaneously bolstering our nationwide community. Click to read more about the impending boycott via the Chicago Defender, the Washington Post, and MSNBC. Click here to visit, which breaks it all down.

Last week I shared this Huffington Post piece on black owned Etsy shops and it was pointed out to me that this post was from 2012, and surely there were more new black owned Etsy shops since then. Gina of What About Our Daughters did an additional post featuring Creative Black Women You Can Support on Cyber Monday. This is my attempt to update the list including the links people dropped via my Facebook wall, and to also include businesses that aren’t on Etsy – especially some of the natural hair brands I’ve come to know and love through the years. Here is my definitive list of 101 black owned businesses that could use your support this holiday season and beyond. If I missed yours, PLEASE drop a link in the comments.

the lavender and wildflowers line is THE BEST SMELLING THING EVER. so is the olive oil and green tea and the mango butter line. they all smell great really but lavender and wildflowers is by far my favorite. everything is super moisturizing and works amazingly too. made by sundial brands, a black owned company that also makes shea moisture.

According to a recent study by the Nielsen Company, African Americans will have $1.1 trillion in collective buying power by 2015 (increasing to about $1.3 trillion by 2017. However, the question we must address is why doesn't this translate into more economic empowerment within the African American community? If more African American businesses are going to thrive it will require a greater level of B2B (Black_to_Black) support. Recent reports have shown that on average a dollar circulates in Asian communities for a month, in Jewish communities approximately 20 days and White communities 17 days. The dollar stays in the Black community for only 6 hours and truthfully, it only stays that long because someone didn't have gas money. African American support of businesses should not be limited to durable goods, products and services but should also include intellectual property such as Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). Tax planning & preparation, accounting and business consulting are all services that help build, promote and manage wealth. You can't produce wealth for others if your personal and or business health is anemic. Check us out at

Hello! I just wanted to let all the great business owners on this thread know about the Black Business Network. My company has recently joined as a supplier and we have seen phenomenal results already. This company, owned by black millionaires, has put together a system where products of black owned businesses are marketed and distributed to black consumers. It is much more than the typical third party website. It really lightens you load in terms of marketing and pack/ship and the back office is also a social network. It also increases sales, of course wholesale not retail $ but products go international. All weekend long they are having a Buy Black First sale for Black Friday. They are actively looking for more black owned businesses to join. Check it out if you are interested and determine if this may be good for your business. It is free to join as a member to receive news etc. to learn more.

wow. this is an awesome list of wonderful, black-owned companies. what a phenomenal resource for those of us who really embrace & want to impact/support/grow black economics nationally & globally. thanks so much! i'd like to add my company to the list: - which is an art production company operating out of stamford, ct. i produce very original art (paintings, sculptures on canvas & 3-D mixed media/canvas), one-of-a-kind 'artware' (giftware=smaller renditions of original pieces and prints), unique/funky jewelry, graphic art & greeting cards. i also develop and conduct self-esteem building, collage-creating workshops for children and adults. i'm psyched to be a part of such a tremendous movement.
