Here’s how you can support black-owned businesses and spend locally for Black Pound Day.
It’s Black Pound Day AND Christmas time and we are back!
Black Pound Day, celebrated on the first Saturday of every month, supports black-owned businesses across the UK, with the first being held back in June.
Founded by So Solid Crew member Swiss, the day is a “solution-based, community-empowering campaign and motivating endeavour that will leave a better infrastructure for the next generation to walk into”.
The initiative also encourages shoppers to support black-owned businesses on a longterm basis to help the growth of the UK’s black economy.
