In her 2014 Grand Rapids TEDx Talk, Maggie Anderson, author of Our Black Year and brains behind The Empowerment Experiment, explains that “a dollar circulates in Asian communities for up to 28 days, in Jewish communities for nearly 20 days, in white communities for 17 days and in Hispanic communities for 7 days. Yet in the Black community, a dollar circulates for only 6 hours.” We have over a trillion dollars in buying power in the US, so how is this possible? Well, for one, black unemployment stays four times higher than other races. So, we wanted to highlight outstanding black-owned businesses throughout South Florida, for all the community to support. We'll be highlighting more B.O.B.'s throughout this month as well, so stay tuned!
