New Mobile App Connects Users to Black Businesses

Have you ever been walking around a neighborhood looking to support small black businesses, but you can't quite point out where to go? Well that has recently been solved for you with mobile app, "Where U Came From."

Officially released last month, WHERE U Came From is the premier and reliable Black business directory app for Apple and Android devices offering a local business search with real-time listings.

Created by Atlanta-based, social entrepreneur Dr. Dionne Mahaffey, the app sets out to bring together African American business awareness in addition to other issues in the Black community. Her company, The CPAI Group, also launched The Loyalty Stamp, a mobile rewards app, last year.

Did you know that currently, a dollar circulates in Asian communities for 30 days, in Jewish communities approximately 20 days, white communities 17 days, but in contrast a dollar circulates in the Black community only six hours?!?! Something to think about when you shop!
