In an effort to promote the financial enrichment of the black community, Empowerment Experiment founder Maggie Anderson hosted a packed event at Kandi Burruss’ TAGS Boutique in Atlanta. With the support of distinguished African American sponsors, the cognac tasting and networking event underscored the need for black consumers to support black products.
“Other communities support each other, it’s time for us to support ourselves,” said David Karaunga, the owner of Ivory Chevrolet in Union City, Ga.
The elegant venue was standing room only as guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres (compliments of Buckhead Epicurean, an African American-owned catering company) while networking with black business owners and supporters. The party simply encouraged people to make conscious decisions about where they open their wallets.
