As we embrace the spirit of gratitude during National Gratitude Month and gear up to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Black PR Wire corporate team reflects on the many things we have to be grateful for. We want to thank our valued customers, media colleagues, associates, and friends for their continued support.
We also shine a light on the influential presence of Black-owned media, serving as trusted voices heralding the issues, trends, and triumphs of our community. According to NPR, Black-owned media represents approximately 4% of all U.S. media, standing as beacons of inspiration.
In addition, we are also thankful for the success and the thriving landscape of Black-owned businesses making significant contributions to the American economy. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2020, there were an estimated 140,918 Black- or African American-owned businesses. Leading the way, dynamic states like Florida, California, and New York show the majority of Black or African American ownership, according to the Pew Research Center.
As we gather around the table, let's be thankful for the achievements of these thriving businesses and use their stories to inspire and aspire. May we all aspire to reach new heights and contribute to the greatness that defines our collective journey.
Happy Thanksgiving and may peace and blessings be bestowed unto you and your family!
The Black PR Wire team!
