Black Owned Nail Salons in New York City

Businesses is what drives our communities and economies of those communities.

We NEED to bring awareness to Black-owned businesses and we need to understand the importance of giving money back to our very own communities. Blacks spend less money in black-owned businesses than any other racial group spend in businesses owned by members of their groups (this includes Hispanics  and Asians). 

A report by Nielsen and Essence estimates that black buying power is over $1.3 trillion dollars yet only a tiny fraction of that money is spent at black-owned businesses. It is critical for black people to devote more attention to building wealth within the black community unless we will ALWAYS be BEHIND

I encourage ALL people but especially Black people to invest in our own businesses to increase the longevity and influence within our communities. 

This change and shift is important for everyone. We need to consciously shift our thoughts (the thoughts that we have been programmed to think). Supporting Black Owned Businesses creates jobs, build up communities, and provides a sense of economic prosperity. The children of our communities need to grow up seeing businesses owned by all races to understand that there is a level playing field in the world of entrepreneurship and everyone has access to the "American" dream. We absolutely MUST show our Black Children that they themselves can be business owners and show non-black kids the diversity that lies outside of chain stores.
