"Ive always felt the importance of
Business, entrepreneurship, hustle and
Ownership especially from within the
Black community...In celebration of Black
Pound day we ask people of every race to
Support our brands and business"
"I made a post about Black Pound Day and that's me supporting Black owned businesses, I'm allowed to do that, and I believe in it, and I want to support it, and I think that a lot of us should support it. I I also think that it's important that we do know who we are buying from, where we're buying from."
"Black Pound Day is important in driving us so we can continue to make our stamp economically in the world. Representation and ownership is everything, this is something our culture needed."
"#BlackPoundDay is a positive campaign it isn't about boycotting non-Black businesses its simply about making a concerted effort to increase spending and investment with Black owned enterprises."
Ian WardLeader Of Birmingham City Council

"#Blackpoundday has made a huge difference to Afrocenchix, each BPD we sell at least double what we do on a normal day and this extra revenue has allowed us to hire 2 new team members and grow our customer base to well over 15,000. Many of those customers came in on the first BPD and have stayed with us!”
