Circulating the Black Dollar and Building the Community
Play • 16 min

Answer this: who is getting your money? When we spend our dollars at big-box stores, we're handing them billions in revenue annually. Meanwhile, our people continue to lose TRILLIONS in Black wealth, a reality that’s fueled by systemic racism. What would happen, though, if our people stopped spending money outside of the community?

On today’s episode, we talk about circulating the dollar, supporting Black businesses, and the simple actions you can take right now to build our own economy and build wealth in our community.
