Black Owned Business Crawl Recap
Saturday, May 21st November Project Philly held its first ever Black Owned Business Crawl – a 5 mile run to Black Owned Businesses around the city of Philadelphia. As unique of an idea as it may sound, Black Owned Business Crawls have become a great way to garner support for Black and Brown owned businesses around the nation. However, to put our November Project stamp on it, we integrated aspects of other Black Owned Business Crawls with a well known Storytelling event format known as “The Crate Escape” – an event where participants ran from location to location to hear theme based stories from people within their community. This style of event not only encouraged patronage, but also fostered connection, curiosity, and exploration in a way that provides opportunities for greater visibility, appreciation, and support of black owned establishments. Listed below will be information about the businesses that participated along with some ways YOU can support them moving forward. If you are attending the November Project Summit in Philadelphia this September, I highly recommend you take notes. 😉 To begin the event, the group met up at REC Philly which is located at 9th and Market St on the 2nd floor of the Fashion District mall in Center City.
