  • When we buy black, we exercise our self-determination that enables us to create, define, think, and speak for ourselves

  • We each feel like we matter more and we have responsibility & control over what's happening around us

  • More people have opportunity and access to wealth and our businesses have greater means of production and competition

  • Wealth is distributed in a way that is healthier and just and less destabilizing to humanity

  • We build stronger, safer communities 

  • We create strong, inclusive local economies

  • Foster job creation

  • Present visibility and a true representation of our culture that inspires the next generation 

  • If we do not build for ourselves, will be controlled by those that do

I was floored by EMichele's commitment to find, visit, and support black owned businesses. She is creating an amazing platform for us.

I posted awhile back looking for a recruiting service to help me locate talent to strengthen my teams. I had not had much luck with a few other agencies however I recalled a conversation with someone from the group referring EMichele Paul Howard and her business Melanin Enterprise. I could write a short story about how pleased we were with her work so I will keep it brief. She is VERY professional, Very detailed, sent quality candidates and Very affordable, even for a small business like us. She even has a replacement policy in case a candidate does not work out.
I would recommend ME to any business owner who is looking to hire staff for their business. EMichele Paul is one of the best!!
