The Buy Black Friday Marketplace at the Shrine Cultural & Events Center again provided an opportunity for entrepreneurs and consumers to gather together to support and celebrate Black businesses as it does every first and third Saturday of the month. United under the goal of community empowerment, participants voted with their dollars to steer money away from traditional stores and into Black businesses. Scores of local and national vendors were on hand for the most recent event, with customers commenting on the high quality of goods as well as the positive, family-friendly vibe. Attendees included organizer Nailah Nelson, Carolyn Murry, Gregory Stokes, Ayinde Bradshaw, Cam Kuykendall, Kim & Lindberg Williams, Akindele X, Mathieu Eugene, Sharon Johnson, Cherie Harding and scores more.
