www.authormaggieanderson.com In 2009 Maggie and John Anderson, a successful African American couple raising two daughters in a suburb of Chicago, engaged in a highly publicized social experiment to reinvest in the Black community and buy from only Black-owned businesses for a year.
Following the Empowerment Experiment, Maggie penned a book entitled “Our Black Year“. It examines the commercial exploitation of Black neighborhoods and explores the reasons why Black businesses lag behind businesses of all other racial and ethnic groups in every measure of success.
Maggie argues that the social crises that disproportionately impact Black people and underserved Black neighborhoods could be countered through what she calls “conscious consumerism.” She now leads a self-help economics movement uniting business owners, consumers, corporate and community partners to empower struggling communities.
The mission of The Empowerment Experiment Foundation (EEF) is the dedicated study and facilitation
of economic development in underserved minority communities via self-help economics/conscious consumerism,
financial literacy, targeted entrepreneurship and business diversity and inclusion. To visit the site now CLICK HERE.
