As you know we’re advocating supporting businesses owned and operated by our HBCU family.

I though you’d enjoy the video attached, as a reminder of why the little decisions we make daily and weekly make a huge difference.

Showcase YOUR HBCU Alumni-Owned Business – Historically Black Friday

Do you know excellent HBCU Alumni business owners?

We’ve seen first hand, the power of uniting and approaching change through our economic power.

This holiday season, Alumni Roundup is supporting alumni-owned businesses, with the hope of creating more opportunities for our dollars to circulate in our community.

Introducing Historically Black Friday Once a week we’re sending our membership of thousands of alumni a summary of businesses owned by members of our community.

We’ve created an opportunity for those excellent service providers and vendors among us to reach a receptive audience of supportive alumni.

Direct to Alumni.

We hope that the Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists, Restauranteurs, and vendors among us will find this more than helpful. And we hope our membership finds the opportunity to fulfill more of their holiday shopping from within our ranks.

Sincerely, -Be Moore Founder, Alumni Roundup

A School is Always Teaching: What Deborah Brown Community School Taught One Little Black Girl


If you haven’t seen it yet, here is the news story about 7-year-old Tiana Parker. She’s a former student at Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Deborah Brown Community School, whose father ultimately pulled her out after being repeatedly told by the school to change his daughter’s hairstyle. Tiana’s dreadlocked hair was in violation of the school’s dress code which clearly states, “Hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros and other faddish styles are unacceptable.” (see page 13).

That’s the basic story, but this goes so much deeper.

How Social Media Fueled the Ultimate Body Fuel Course

by Quia Querisma

Like most digital start-ups, started out of necessity and a desire for change. Coach Bryndan “Be” Moore, a certified nutrition coach, didn’t always live a life of clean eating and regular exercise.

Years ago, Be visited the gym intermittently, and would grow frustrated that he wasn’t achieving the physical results he was looking for. He lived a stop and start cycle with exercise and it was a passive approach to fitness. However, it was his father’s congestive heart failure and kidney failure that rattled him to his core.

After years of dialysis, as his father headed in for what would be a successful kidney transplant, Be had a moment of introspection that led him to pursue a significantly healthier lifestyle.

“There is a sense of helplessness that comes to the loved ones of those facing major surgery. In retrospect that was the day I decided to do the most I could to minimize my chances of passing on that experience to the people who care for me,” he said.
