Black Wednesday (aka Buy Black Wednesdays & Pan African Market Day)

Thank you for adding friends and joining our national and worldwide movement to support black businesses and black people financially by going out of your way on Wednesdays to spend your money in the Black Community. The goal is to support our own businesses every day but especially on Wednesdays! BBW is about more than one day, it is a homecoming! It's a way to revist Black History Month and Kwanzaa on a weekly basis! It's a weekly reminder of self love through community! It's a way to regroup, remodel and rejuvenate our way of thinking and living and getting and giving back to black! You can help by having a Buy Black Wednesday sale or spreading the word about Black Wednesday on the phone, the internet and by calling folks on the phone! Because as soon as this campaign reaches critical mass it will benefit every black person on the planet!!

On Black Friday we literally trample over each other to give our money to others and build up their communities at the expense of our own! Let us run to each other and build our own communities on Black Wednesday! We don't have to be a poor Trillion Dollar Nation, which is about how much money African Americans make annually. The problem is we intergrate our dollars too swiftly when we would be better of segregating them; i.e. keeping them in the family! The Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma, also called Black Wall Street, used to circulate their dollars 36 to 100 times inside the community back in the early 1900s! Sometimes a dollar would circulate one whole year in that 36 square block area that bustled with over 600 black owend businesses!

Why Wednesday? Because Wednesday is Hump Day! Because Wednesday is the 4th day of the week and Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) is the 4th principle of Kwanzaa! So you can also call this Sikujamaa or Cooperative Economics Day! And in order to include everybody you can also call it African Reparations Day - a day to give reparations to our selves, but also a day that allows and encourages any non Africans who realize that Africa is the heart, birthplace and breadbasket of the world to give back to the Motherland and her people and help level the world's playing field for all!!

Economics is one of the major issues in the Black Community! Most black male/female relationships are broken up or strained because of money problems! Most black on black crime and homicides are usually related to money. The reason we don't have more clout in the world community is because of a lack of unity and funds! Black Artists who could uplift the whole world often languish in a obscure purgatory of poverty and desperation. We Africans in America have money, but we rarely keep it in our communities long enough to change our impact on the world and our living conditions! So let us begin to change all that through this red, black and GREEN (!) Financial Revolution called Black Wednesday!!!
