It's Black Pound Day: Here's how we can support
Author: Wardah Sempa | Saturday 27th June 2020
Black Pound Day has launched for the first time ever! This special day marks a significant step forward in following the Black Lives Matter movement and it will be celebrated once every month. The special day will see people across the UK supporting and investing in Black-Owned businesses for the day.
It’s been set up by Swiss, who rose to fame as part of So Solid Crew. Swiss was inspired by the energy of the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minnesotan police in the USA.
