Give back to your community. Known as Ujamaa, cooperative economics is to utilize community resources in order to provide a steady growth in your community. This could mean making a commitment to shop locally, to sourcing out black-owned or community-run organizations in which a percentage of profits are designated for community development or individual initiatives. Alternately, this is a great day to watch Lackawanna Blues, as the movie provides a great example of community organizing.
