After spending countless hours wondering how best we can contribute to the ongoing fight against racism and inequality in the world, we realized through research and conversation with close friends and family, that one way to contribute is by empowering black businesses and the black community. As creators on the African continent, we remain cognizant of issues that affect us and we will not turn a blind eye in the face of injustice.
HERE IS OUR PLEDGE:
We pledge to use our platforms as positive spaces and we will to continue to confront racism and inequality.
We will remain weary of issues around misrepresentation of black people and black culture.
We will strive to support black creatives and artists.
We pledge to use our platforms to promote black businesses to empower them towards financial independence.
To our fellow Africans and black community in the U.S where recent cases or racism and police brutality have ensued, we see you and stand by you 🖤
