The indelible link between

economic rights and civil rights

Leaders such as Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey understood that economic independence, based on racial solidarity, was the foundation of the struggle for civil rights. When we give away our money, we give away our power. Without economic independence tied to the acquisition of political power, Black people in America and African people everywhere will continue to be the subjects of oppression and systemic racism. Thus, economic independence, achieved through business ownership, is the foundation of not only wealth building, but also civil rights for Black Americans.
