August is National Black Business Month

(Black PR Wire) Entrepreneurship can be a tough road, but with passion and perseverance, it can lead you on a successful journey.

Former President Barack Obama once said “If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey said that “You have to know what sparks the light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world.”

These quotes ring true and will hopefully ignite a new spark into aspiring entrepreneurs. This month is National Black Business Month, the perfect time to recognize Black-owned businesses across the country and to highlight their important role in the community, as well as to the national economy.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Blacks/African Americans owned approximately 124,551 businesses, with about 28.5% (35,547) of these businesses in the Health Care and Social Assistance sector, the highest percentage of any minority group.

Black PR Wire salutes black-owned businesses across the country and encourages you to continue to dream big and pass it forward. Vice President Kamala Harris said it best: “If you are fortunate to have opportunity, it is your duty to make sure other people have those opportunities as well.”

Our call to action is to continue to support and encourage Black-owned businesses in our communities this month and every month. By simply patronizing black businesses, we can help them to grow, thrive and reach new heights.
