Buying Black: The Importance of Spending with Black Businesses.

Black-owned businesses need fuel to sustain, grow, and hire. If we support eliminating the Black wealth divide, we need to commit to buying from Black businesses. Our guest Kezia Williams, the founder of the Black UpStart, launched a new movement called "My Black Receipt" to promote buying from Black-owned businesses.  She asks all communities (Black and Allies' alike) to commit to showing support from Juneteenth through July 6, by buying from Black businesses and then uploading the receipt online. In this episode, we discuss how Kezia started The Black UpStart and My Black Receipt, and the importance of buying, creating, and hiring in the Black-owned space.
