Welcome to The Revolution!  This is not just a show.  It is a MOVEMENT.  The Black community has $1.3 trillion in buying power in the United States; however, too many of our neighborhoods remain underserved, and the world looks down on us as the “minorities” we claim to be.  Melanated people are not a minority, we are the MAJORITY of the world’s population.  It’s time we start acting like it.  

 

The purpose of The Revolution is to bring awareness to the positive and negative aspects of finance and wealth among peoples of the African diaspora.  The goal is to unify the Black community and encourage individuals to do business with and create businesses for individuals within our own community, as well as promote the use of Black owned business within local, national, and world economies.  Click the pictures below to view previous episodes, and tune in on Tuesdays at 6 PM on YouTube Channel:  The Revolution of the Dollar!
