The first #BlackPoundDay is this Saturday (27 June). Learn more about what this means and how to support your favourite brands.
Black Lives Matters means all Black lives matter. It means Black joy matters and Black voices matters. To honour this, Swiss from So Solid Crew, created the movement Black Pound Day. The idea is for this to be a monthly event, where all spending is directed towards Black owned businesses. It's a way in which to empower Black entrepreneurs and celebrate the work that they are doing.
As a Black owned business, we've seen how important it is to invest in our local community. By participating in Black Pound Day, you can help amplify these voices.
