Black Dollar Days Task Force: Building Community Responsibility for Economic Prosperity

Welcome to

Welcome to the Black Dollar Days Task Force (BDDTF) new website. The home of the African American Business Directory (AABD), The Clean Greens Farm & Market project, and the Clean Greens CSA Program.

The BDDTF is a non-profit 501c3 organization, founded by Rev. Dr. Robert L. Jeffrey, Sr. in 1988, whose mission is to promote the principle of self-help and self-sufficiency through economic prosperity and to foster community economic empowerment. All programs and projects are created for that purpose.

We invite you to visit each project and program and join us to continue to make this organization a valuable resource to all communities.

We value your comments and support.

“The way to end poverty is to end the exploitation of the poor. … We must recognize that the problems of neither racial nor economic justice can be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1967
