Paradise’s Buy Black Wednesdays campaign is designed to encourage everybody to buy Black, as often as possible, but especially on Wednesdays! By going out of our way to buy Black on Wednesdays, we will keep, spend and circulate more dollars in our communities.
Why Wednesday? Because Wednesday is known as hump day, the middle of the week and the busiest day of the work week. Also, Paradise encourages those who want to celebrate and practice the seven principles of Kwanzaa year-round to attach the seven principles of Kwanzaa in an orderly fashion to the seven days of the week.
The fourth principle of Kwanzaa is Ujamaa, which makes Wednesday, the fourth day of the week, Cooperative Economics Day!
Paradise’s Buy Black Wednesdays Social Club gets together on Wednesdays to go out and support Black businesses as a group. You may join us wherever you are by also having a group outing. Also, Black businesses can support BBW by having special BBW sales and other offerings on Wednesdays.
Buy Black Wednesdays will be known as another great movement that started locally, in Oakland, and spread nationally and internationally. So please spread the word!
