Introducing the Directory of Black Owned Businesses and Organizations - Black Enterprise
Black Enterprise magazine Fall 2019 issue

Striving to “bring back black,” a new directory has been created to connect black-owned companies with black consumers.

The new Directory of Black Owned Businesses and Organizations (DOBOBO) is a national consumer-driven web-based advertising and marketing business. The founder, Anthony Kojo Darden, is also the president and CEO of DOBOBO.

“We have developed an internet platform to support and publicize your black-owned businesses and organizations in the African/American communities. We strive to provide you with an opportunity to advertise, share resources, and promote cooperative economics through internet advertising. We are working to promote the creation of earning opportunities, increasing and recycling the flow of revenue within our communities, and expanding opportunities for our businesses,” the website explains.

The DOBOBO business model is designed to create an audience that is reflective of black communities while also providing a platform online that will support and promote African American businesses and organizations. DOBOBO will push to promote the creation of earning opportunities, increasing and recycling the flow of revenue within the black community, and expanding opportunities for black businesses and consumers.

The website allows consumers to search locally through its catalog of black-owned businesses while allowing businesses to list themselves in the online directory. There’s also a section for people to make money through an affiliate program.

The first 200 businesses and/or organizations that provide their listing information by Nov. 30, 2019, will receive a free one-year Silver listing in the directory. Just email the following information to
