Meta is bringing back #BuyBlack Friday for a third consecutive year in North America.
Meta emphasized the importance of the Holiday shopping season for Black-owned small businesses, stating that 25% of minority-owned businesses in the U.S. expect to bring in more than one-half of their annual revenue between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, with that figure rising to 34% for Black-owned businesses.
