African American Economic Renewal 


We are currently conducting our AAC Pre-Registration Campaign, which will be comprised of our AAC Member Merchant Pioneers who will be trained, supported and positioned to own a share of this first of its kind, African American shopping and business opportunity Internet based gateway, which we have chosen to trademark as the “African American Connection.”

We are seeking your financial support, through this GoFundMe Campaign, which will further enable us to adequately market this revolutionary initiative to the citizens of our African American communities. We further want you to know, that your contributions will be applied towards the successful implementation and launching of the AAC, which is truly an economical solution, for African Americans, that was thoughtfully engineered over a ten-year period, to act as a one-stop, turnkey online African American shopping and business opportunity gateway.

This gateway has been designed to provide the African American consumer with a one stop destination for purchasing quality goods and services, while supporting their own African American merchants with ‘State-of-the-Art’ web stores, comprising the latest Internet based technology. Every web store platform is connected to and housed within a uniquely designed online African American Shopping Mall. Through this unique platform all of the following business and service related categories are easily accessible:  

New Startup Business – Start your own, personal business, free from the structural barriers of oppressive policies, that commonly restrict our financial options within the current general marketplace climate.

Professional Services – This webstore platform has been engineered to serve our African American academic professionals, who may require the necessity of video consultations, such as our Doctors, Attorneys-at-Law, Dentists and Business Consultants, as an example.

Commission Based Professionals – This AAC webstore platform was specifically designed to serve African American sales professionals, who are selling goods or services within the general market place, such as automotive, real estate, electronics, insurance, etc., and will enable the return of those commission earned dollars, back into our communities, to further stimulate the economic growth and development of our "own" collective communities.

Existing e-Commerce A/A Websites – This AAC webstore platform allows those African American owned entities who currently have websites, which already exist within the world wide web, to gain greater exposure and connectivity to the 42+ Million potential African American consumer market, with its $1 Trillion Dollar, and growing, earning and purchasing power, all which can be enabled and facilitated by the engaging and collective marketing initiative of the AAC National Shopping Center.

Brick-n-Mortar Businesses – In just a few clicks, and from one location on the Internet, this dynamic new system allows you to locate and support our currently established, and perhaps struggling African American ‘Brick-n-Mortar’ businesses, by way of either physically walking in to their business, or perhaps by simply conducting their transactions online through their amazing AAC Web Store, platform.

Non-African American Corporations – The AAC is inclusive, inasmuch that it has been designed to allow us more effective control over minimizing the economic exploitation of the African American consumer, by "other" ethnic commercial groups. And to that conclusion, we are open to non-African American "corporations" ONLY, who are willing to show their serious commitment towards diversity, while also offering the citizens of our collective communities, a truly fair price and market value for their products and services, along with the highest degree and standard of excellence in customer service.

African American Community Based Institutions – This AAC web-based solution has been uniquely created to serve our time honored “Community-Based Institutions” such as our historical institutions, Churches, Mosque, Civic Organizations, Fraternities, Sororities, and other for profit and non-profit groups or organizations, that have historically and are currently serving the needs of many throughout our collective communities. Let us clearly demonstrate to you (in a special personal presentation for you) how this AAC web-based platform has been designed to generate a viable revenue stream for your group or organization, while simultaneously providing a real income opportunity for your members!

AAC Youth Entrepreneurial Program – This program, along with its uniquely designed webstore, has been developed to stimulate and encourage a new way of thinking for these young minds, which will possibly free this next generation from an entrapment of these “last hired and first fired” high risk jobs, that to date, have historically done no more than subjected us to the bottom of every quality of life statistic on record. Encouraging the pursuit of entrepreneurship can also possibly free this future generation, from some of the sociological entrapments fostered by racism and unjust career limitations historically found within this ever-diminishing job market. It's important that they learn the benefit and value of Self-Employment and how it can inevitably lead to the realization of Self-Sufficiency.

As the founder of the AAC, I am truly most hopeful with regards to our Youth Entrepreneurial Program. We clearly must stop this indoctrinating economic madness, of telling our children to just “grow up…get an education…and get a job.” Doing this only condemns our children to the same potentially brutal forces of subjective racism that have historically plagued, the lives and devastated the financial and economic futures of African Americans far too long, in this Nation. After all, look at it this way! You can leave the proceeds and value of a business to your inheritors, but YOU CAN'T LEAVE THEM YOUR JOB!

We purposely engineered the AAC platform to allow for your personal inspection. If you are interested in learning more about this revolutionary new African American online marketing community, we invite you to do your own due diligence and accept our invitation to get the facts about the AAC through our “Take a Tour” invitation, which can be accessed by clicking on the link and/or the “Take a Tour” button located above. Your perusal of our AAC Web Portal, will definitely provide you with the sound, logical reasoning and necessity of your valued donation and consideration for this GoFundMe campaign.

The African American Connection is not some vague idea or promise, but is a “reality” whose time has come, born out of the need for the creation of an economic foundation, which is based upon the collective, collaborative and cooperative cohesiveness of our People, enabling a systemic galvanizing and stabilization of every viable socio-economic segment of our African American ethnicity. For the past decade, our dedicated team have worked diligently, developing the African American Connection, investing their time, intellectual and monetary resources to make this great technological vessel capable of bridging the ever widening gap between the growing African American consumer markets and the emerging and aspiring African American commercial and institutional markets, while also enabling the creation of “new” amazing youth and adult entrepreneurs.

We “now” are appealing to YOU, who are truly conscious of the future needs of our People, as we push towards Self-Sustainability and shared prosperity for African Americans. If we, as a People are to truly rise economically, we “must” be willing to WORK TOGETHER with a Self-Determination and commitment towards Self-Support. If we don’t do this for ourselves, then who should? We "truly" thank you for both your time and support! And we encourage you to help us spread this message and campaign to "others" within our communities everywhere!

“Coming together is our beginning. Keeping together is the progress that we desperately need at this most critical time. Working together is all we need to shape our future to the benefit of us all”!
