What is We Buy Black?
WeBuyBlack.com is the largest online marketplace where Black owned businesses may create a shop and sell their products to the world. Our goal is to help circulate majority of our 1.3 trillion dollar spending power within our own community by creating and maufacting everything we want and need. We Buy Black has beccome the fastest growing movement advocating Black entrepreneurship and collective economic dignity.

What can we expect?

August 25th 2019 marks the 400th year anniversary of when Africans were brought to America for the purpose of Enslavement (August 25th,1619). We partnered with the 400 Years Coalition to host a worldwide moment of silence on Sunday, August 25th, 2019. We will also have panel discussions and guest speakers to support our theme: Remove, Replace, Rebuild: Setting The Precedent For The Next 400 Years.

The We Buy Black Convention will be like no other! It's time we clearly identify and #remove our dollars from products and services that disrespect and devalue our community, #replace them with reputable and amazing Black owned brands, and #rebuild the life and community we want to see. By doing so, we will set the precedent for the next 400 years! Here are some highlights of the convention:

  • The Next 400 Gala (Only 400 Tickets)
  • The Marketplace: 120+ Dynamic Black owned businesses
  • Live Concert Featuring National and Local Artist
  • We Buy Black Fashion show
  • Pitch Black Competition Sponsored By Figgers Wireless
  • Business Workshops (Satuday and Sunday)
  • Main Stage panel discussions with leading experts
  • B2B Speed Consulting: Recieve FREE advice and consultation from professionals

Why should we support? Currently in America, Black people have the highest rates of poverty, of homelessness, of joblessness, of crime, and imprisonment. However, Black people spend more money than any other ethnic group, with an annual purchasing power of $1.3 Trillion. Of all these funds, less than 2% is spent within the Black community. Every ethnic community in America has managed to keep their money circulating among themselves for days and weeks, yet the Black dollars is reported to leave our community within 6 hours. Furthermore, those businesses that we spend our dollars with have historically and more recently direspected and devalued our patronage. Our goal with the We Buy Black movement is to ensure our dollars circulate at the rate equal or better than all other ethnic communities here in America, and to also ensure our future generations have a decent life and well-being.

Final Comments: This weekend is packed with human excellence and we need all our supporters to show up and show out! If you are serious about supporting the Black community and ensuring that our next generations are set on an equal playing field with the world, the We Buy Black Convention is a "MUST ATTEND" event for you.
