Wyclef Jean Chimes In on Google’s #BlackOwnedFriday Efforts

The tech giant is working with U.S. Black Chambers, BBH New York

Efforts to promote #BlackOwnedFriday Nov. 27 by Google, U.S. Black Chambers and creative agency BBH New York received a huge boost from Grammy Award-winning artist Wyclef Jean.

BlackOwnedFriday kicked off as a social-first campaign in mid-October with the goal of telling the stories of Black-owned businesses, providing information on available resources from Google and U.S. Black Chambers’ ByBlack directory and encouraging people to share their favorite Black-owned businesses via their social accounts.

BBH New York also created #BlackOwnedFriday assets that are available on Google’s and Google Small Business’ social media channels.
