Daniel Lister, Founder of My Black Market, says that the Black community spends 95% of its money outside of the community. Of the remaining 5% that is spent within the community, 3% goes to non-Black owned businesses. This, he says, leaves us with only 2% of our income; and nobody can live off 2% of their income.
This group has been to raise awareness, empower, encourage, uplift and promote black businesses within the Manchester area so that, moving forward, the black community can thrive and finally be acknowledged as the strong, beautiful, intelligent, talented group of people that we truly are to the wider community.
Only through a thriving economic status will we have the power to win the war on injustice, inhumanity and systemic oppression
