Happy Web Series Wednesday!
I am enjoying this new docuseries Buy Black for 30 on Black & Sexy TV. I’m already supporter of this network (i.e That Guy and Becoming Nia). Buy Black for 30 focuses on couple (and founders of Black & Sexy TV) Dennis Dortch and Numa Perrier’s 30 day challenge to spend money only at black businesses. That means finding black owned gas stations, black owned restaurants, black owned nail technicians and the list goes on. All black everything! It’s interesting to watch and it’s not as easy as it may sound to some. As big as California is, Numa and Dennis have to travel all the way to Compton (they live in Los Angeles) to purchase gas at the only black owned gas station in Southern California. In this trailer for the docuseries Washington DC & Maryland are listed as the top places for owning a black business. Living in Maryland, I believe that and I can see that. Below is the trailer and the first two episodes of this docuseries.
