The Black Junction Team
Black Junction is 100% Black owned and operated. The founders and owners of Black Junction, Yusuf Asturias and Anthony Alleyne, are two life long friends who grew up in Newark, NJ together.
The idea started with a Facebook group for Black Business owners called Black Main Street, that quickly grew to its own website and platform; www.blackmainstreet.net. The goal of Black Main Street is to help the growth of Black Businesses by providing a platform, where Black business owners can connect with each other. Black Main Street grew rapidly, gaining thousands of members in a short period of time. However, many members began to voice their concerns with the fact that the platform only allowed Black business owners to join, thus cutting them off from potential clients and customers. Black Junction was created after many people suggested a platform that would incorporate Black business owners with the rest of the Black Community. These suggestions, combined with the fact that the largest social media website on the web has been frequently banning and censoring Black topics of discussion, culminated in the creation of Black Junction.
