Black-owned Hotels Create Jobs in the Black Community

African Americans Spend $40 Billion Each Year on Travel and Tourism, But Few of These Dollars Are Re-Invested Into Black Communities... Until Now!


In an article at, the National Association of Black Hotel Owners Operators and Developers (NABHOOD) and the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. announce an initiative to increase the focus of Black consumers on the support of Black-owned hotels. 

According to NABHOOD, there are more than 500 black-owned hotels and hospitality venues in the United States, and nine in the Caribbean, Ghana and Liberia. Striving to do more business with black-owned hotels will result in increasing jobs and cultivating more black executives and owners within the same industry where they are spending billions every year.

The U.S. Black Chambers (USBC) and the National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators and Developers (NABHOOD) have agreed to work together to raise awareness of the importance of patronizing black-owned businesses. USBC provides support to over 240,000  African American business owners across the country, every year. USBC celebrated their 5th anniversary in 2014, and has become part of our nation's consciousness and that of the chambers and businesses they serve.

According to NABHOOD treasurer Norman Jenkins, ownership represents black economic power. USBC President Ron Busby Jr. agrees: "...we know black business is the key to the unemployment that is wreaking havoc on our communities."
