The documentary “Black Friday” takes an in depth look into the spending habits of African-Americans in America. The film chronicles the financial mis-education of many African-Americans and explores the economic pitfalls that continue to derail the progress of the community at large. In an effort to heighten the economic awareness and financial responsibility in the community, “Black Friday” presents solutions on how to better manage the $1.2 trillion that leaves African-American communities annually. In addition, the film champions the importance of leaving a financial and ethical legacy for the next generation. Watch a trailer and learn more at thefilmblackfriday.com.
