Why You Should Go?
Do you value African heritage, authenticity and personal interaction. Here is why you should attend, support with your money and then give feedback to Africa foodie events in November 2015?
Please read on and think about the following...
So our people not only have to be re-educated to the importance of supporting black business, but the black man himself has to be made aware of the importance of going into business. And once you and I go into business, we own and operate at least the businesses in our community. What we will be doing is developing a situation wherein we will actually be able to create employment for the people in the community. And once you can create some employment in the community where you live it will eliminate the necessity of you and me having to act ignorantly and disgracefully, boycotting and picketing some place else trying to beg him for a job.
Anytime you have to rely upon your enemy for a job you’re in bad shape.
Support Then Review African Events
We need to constantly, aggressively market support and promote African food businesses
We need to give feedback on how they can be improved, what you loved and what they can do better
We need to keep reviewing African cooking, food businesses and popup restaurants
...only then we will see change..
