I have attended many events that have given me an opportunity to buy a stall and display my merchandise on a pop up shop - but Black Pound Day at the Legacy Centre of Excellence in Birmingham, was one of the most memorable by far.
In the words of the founder of Black Pound day - Swiss, a member of So Solid Crew
"Black Pound Day is a real solution-based community-empowering campaign and motivating endeavour that will leave a better infrastructure for the next generation to walk into. The day will provide the community with self-pride and a routined spending structure to move forward and close the product to consumer loop. ‘The community will gain greater knowledge to be able to access and invest in black business. The vision of Black Pound Day is to empower the community to create a new economy which will in turn underpin our long-term financial growth and infrastructure."
In the words of the Legacy Centre
"Black Pound day was created as a direct response for the need for black people to be financially seen and acknowledged"
I personally am very grateful for the opportunity to be able to learn about finances and the importance of supporting my community whilst celebrating the power of the Black Pound.
The atmosphere on the day was very encouraging and for the reasonable price of the stall I was also able to make a good profit. I sold my own brand of t-shirts, coasters, masks, books and more...
With all of the attention from the media at the moment that is being given to black culture, I am empowered and proud to be a part of this movement and I would encourage all of my brothers and sisters in the community to support this initiative that will help to build our financial stability as a people.
Thank you to everyone who purchased something from my stall or even shared a kind word of encouragement. I appreciate you all.
