Artist collective NON is organizing BLACK Friday, a global event taking place on July 15.
The collective asks individuals to purchase any goods or services exclusively from Black-owned businesses on this day. They ask people to support Black lives by sharing their resources with these respective businesses.
The event is part of the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and aims to take “steps towards generational healing and cleansing”, as well as redirecting resources. NON encourages participants to show business owners and employees the image of the event flyer to actively show support by letting them know of their participation in the event.
NON is a collective of African artists, and of the diaspora. They use sound as their primary media to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society and in turn, distribute power.
See the FB event page for more details.**
