The Spending Black Matters Facebook group, managed by Influencers Lab Media, has taken the group offline with their first official in-person event. The event will be held at the Wilmington Public Library, Saturday, February 26th in celebration of Black History Month.
Spending Black Matters is a group started the summer of 2020 at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. The group’s growth was exponential and grew to over 20,000 members in the first three months with a large membership residing right here in Wilmington, DE.

Hosted by Stephanie Dawkins and RadioShach. Music provided by DJ Tim Dogg. To RSVP, register at iflevents.com or click on the registration button below.
