Diversity Marketplace - February 6, 2021


Diversity Marketplace - February 6, 2021

    Join the EEM for the Diversity Marketplace being held via Zoom, February 6, 2021.

    Update: Video & Images of the February Event






    Join Diversity Marketplace (DMp) as we showcase the talent, skills, ability and knowledge that God has given black people. 

    Our theme is Black Love which is a combination of celebrating Black History Month and Valentine’s Day. Clips and information from the documentary movie BOSS will also be shared as we highlight black vendors. Our black community has expanded and will include local businesses along with businesses in Virginia and Washington State.  During this time of social distancing our worship and church is not restricted by distance and the same is true of the black community - we have expanded as we unite.

    Quick Fact: There was a time that the dollar remained in the black community for 3-5 YEARS!

    Our goal as DMp is to be a conduit to help expose and bridge the gap among us with a primary goal of maintaining the dollar within the black community for more than a few hours.

    Join us on zoom Saturday, February 6, 2021 from 6 – 8 PM to learn more about OUR  history and identify black businesses to support. When we help one, we help us all.  Are you shopping with DMp?

    Disclaimer: Your purchasing experience will be COMPLETELY between you and the vendor.
