It's time to support Black businesses! See how you can get involved this weekend.
It's time to come out and support Black businesses around the nation.
Join the Empowerment Experiment as they launch their first ever Cash Mob (Noir). The event is set to demonstrate "economic value and benefit of supporting local, quality, Black owned businesses."
The idea is to storm seven select cities and "spend cash," at least $20, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday May 19 at Black owned businesses in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C./Prince George's County, MD.
To end a day of shopping, lounges in various cities will host a Mob-Mixer from 7-9 p.m.
So put on your shopping shoes and get ready to spend, spend, spend!
Below are a list of participating shops and mob mixer locations.
