Navigating to Black-Owned Businesses in Birmingham

In the bustling city of Birmingham, an ambitious visionary named Jamaine Stanton had a transformative idea while talking to a coworker about website traffic. The concept of Black Business Traffic (BBT) was born, resembling a navigation tool but with a unique purpose–to guide users to Black-owned businesses, forging connections and fostering economic growth.
For three years, while studying law at Birmingham School of Law, Stanton designed every detail of BBT. From late-night scribbles to communication with developers, the vision evolved from a mere app into a powerful marketing tool.
Initially, BBT was envisioned as a behind-the-scenes venture, but its true essence became clear–more than an app, it’s a platform. With the platform free to users, the real product becomes the businesses featured on BBT, turning it into a major marketing asset for those fortunate enough to be showcased. The inspiration for BBT stemmed from a common need felt by many. Countless stories of disappointing experiences supporting Black-owned businesses fueled the determination to curate only the best. The goal is simple yet impactful: drive business directly to the doorsteps of Birmingham’s nest Black-owned establishments. The essence of BBT goes beyond physical boundaries.
In a world where the traditional notion of a “Black community” has evolved, businesses are no longer conned to specic streets or sides of town. Birmingham’s Black-owned businesses are uid, spanning every area and reaching online platforms. BBT steps in to bridge the gap, connecting users to these businesses regardless of their location. The days of a neatly lined-up Black Wall Street are gone.
The visionaries behind BBT understand that supporting the Black community now means supporting Black families. By backing a Black-owned business, individuals contribute to the smallest unit of the community–the family. This support becomes a catalyst for thriving businesses, impacting not only bank accounts but also increasing opportunities for loans and homeownership.
In Birmingham, Black Business Traffic is not just an app; it’s a movement. It’s about navigating towards excellence, supporting Black families, and transforming the landscape of Black business.
