Recently, I attended a meeting which is an attempt to coordinate and unify all efforts that support the growth of Black- owned businesses. 

While there, I met and chatted with young fashion designer Ron Green, CEO of What’s Up African? Apparel Co., a business he describes as “socially- conscious” fashion wear. 

Ron calls himself a designer, activist, and motivator, and states that “his apparel that can spark conversation or controversy [which] is the science behind his success”.

Check out his clothing line at or to order your apparel, call him directly at 484.904.8229.
