About Blax Friday

This project was created to take away emphasis from using “Black” as a discount code via Black Friday. In turn, we created BLAX Friday where people shop at Black-Owned Businesses. Not for a discount on Friday – but just because.

This project has been a year long experience for Roux Events, with a huge shout-out to the creator of BLAX, Khailill Knight-Papaioannou and HR Professional, Michaela Baker; whose Facebook posts started a call with #BlackLives. for getting to know local Black business owners, and the importance of representation and financial support.

Many Black-owned businesses are lumped into categories labeled “PoCs” or “Minority” and a higher population of “PoCs” in Tucson, they are often overlooked, and it’s rare to see Black-owned businesses receive recognition or granted access to financial assistance. This is what the movement is about #BlackLives. Support for Black-owned businesses.
