Celebrate August as Black Business Month! Throughout the month, #EPBlackBusinessNetwork will shine a spotlight on Black Entrepreneurs on the Border, featured in the #ElPasoBlackBusinessDirectory. Founded by Historian John William Templeton and engineer Frederick E. Jordan Sr in 2004, National Black Business Month aims to impact policies affecting 2.6 million Black businesses.
Despite facing historical challenges like systemic racism, redlining, and violence, Black businesses have shown incredible resilience and success. Let’s honor those who paved the way for today’s entrepreneurs in El Paso County with Black El Paso Voice.
El Paso can make a positive impact by supporting initiatives like elpasoblackpages.com, a free platform for Black business owners, and the El Paso Black Business Network. Embracing business diversity and celebrating milestones, successes, and progress in the Black business community is vital for our city’s continued success.
Black entrepreneurs bring unique perspectives, talents, and innovation that enrich the fabric of our city. It’s essential to provide them with the necessary resources, opportunities, and recognition. Let’s also remember, as business owners, to prioritize delivering a pleasant customer experience. #BlackBusinessMonth #SupportBlackBusinesses #ElPasoEntrepreneurs #BusinessDiversity #InnovationMatters
