What is National Black Business Month?
“Black Business Month is exciting because it gives us an opportunity to focus on a community that is far too often underrepresented when it comes to access to capital and opportunities to build wealth.”Moore, Denise, National Today, 2022, National Black Business Month-August 2022, para.
National Black Business Month was created by John William Templeton and Fredrick E. Jordan Sr. in 2004. Its purpose is to bring attention to black-owned businesses as there are more than 2 million across the nation. This Month encourages our nation to support Black-owned businesses so they may keep growing.
