Through programming, campaigns, and marketplaces, Dr. Key’s company, the Village Market, has become a staple in the city of Atlanta and an economic vehicle, which has coined the phrase “Support is a Verb”. Since 2016, The Village Market ATL has been a direct pipeline for Black businesses. The Village connects Black-owned businesses to engaged consumers, resources, and dedicated community partners. The Village reaches small businesses in 38 states and 4 countries, with an official partnership with The Bahamas.
But, remember, the true power of community is that every hand does not have to do the same thing. We simply have to work towards a shared outcome. Engage in the area that you are most talented, where you are most gifted. We need your passion there.
