As movements grow to focus on supporting Black-owned businesses, there’s one type of Black business that is falling by the wayside.
Campaigns like Beyonce’s Black Parade directory and ‘My Black Receipt’ with directives to mobilize consumers to buy Black are important and impactful. With a goal of getting the public to spend at least $5M on Black-owned businesses, My Black Receipt reportedly managed to promote over half a million dollars in sales. But what’s blatantly left out of these campaigns? Black-owned media companies.
The Black Owned Media Equity and Sustainability Institute was created to unite and advance Black-owned media businesses, educate the public on the importance of these platforms, and provide resources to support. Black-owned media outlets have been a beacon for Black communities for over 190 years.
