DETROIT (WXYZ) — People of color around the country are being urged to put down their wallets for a full 24 hours.

It’s “Blackout Tuesday,” a viral social media initiative aiming to demonstrate the economic impact of the Black community.

As a footnote of today’s movement, if you absolutely have to spend money, you’re urged to spent it at a Black-owned business – Detroit soul being just of them locally.

This movement started about two months ago — as a call to action on social media.

There are more than 400 Black-owned businesses in metro Detroit alone.

Phillip Lewis, a front-page editor for the Huffington Post, and Kaila, a traveling photographer, were able to put together a list of all the Black-owned businesses in metro Detroit.
