SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For nearly thirty years, African American Expressions has vowed to honor black excellence by creating products for a retail market that is constantly overlooked --The black community. Despite being one of the most influential consumers when it comes to direct influence in the US, many businesses overlook African Americans when it comes to the creation of their products.
"We were founded on the idea that it was time to for us, as African Americans, but more importantly as citizens of this earth, to be able to walk into a store and see ourselves reflected in the products we purchased. To feel like we are a part of it. In our present state, this tumultuous political climate is a reminder that now more than ever, a strong dedication to the preservation of our place in this nation's lexicon is crucial." – Greg Perkins CEO
- This year African American Expressions is dedicating itself to creating new products meant to highlight and acknowledge black history outside of the traditional February time frame.
- In order to shine a light on as many new talents as possible, African American Expressions will also be introducing dozens of new products created by independent artists as a small part of its commitment to creating quality products that highlight the burgeoning talent within the black community.
- African American Expressions will continue to re-invest thousands into community action groups, organizations and schools around the US by offering its full line of products in a fundraising program, as well as donating money, supplies, and time to varying local charities here in our home state.
- Will honor our history – always.
