In 2021 the West Volusia Chapter of the NAACP collaborated with DeLand Pride to create a black business directory for the community. In order to satisfy the grant that was awarded to DeLand Pride, the site was launched in October. At that time, 50% of the businesses were DeLand and the rest were mostly from the east side of the county. Immediately, we saw the need and ability to support the entire county and transitioned the site to on December 1, 2021.

Right now, we need boots on the ground to help lay the foundation and get more businesses (and non-profits) involved. Below are ways the community can help:

1) Encourage black-owned businesses to visit and go to the bottom of the page, and click on the button “add your business” to be included in the directory.

2) Invite everyone you know (black, white, purple, and green!) to visit, like, comment on posts, and share the Facebook page: 

3) Share this information!

A Message from Our President

Since 1909, The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has been a leader in the fight against discriminatory practice, social justice, and economic equality for black and brown people. I have been a member since 1988, and am now a lifetime member which expresses my belief in the fight. Membership shows a commitment to be a part of the solution—bigger than one person or group with the agreement to work toward a greater good. The members of the NAACP reason together to develop resolutions and develop strategies to move the cause for racial equality for all. I welcome you to read the history, review the cases, and investigate the past and present leaders. Within the NAACP you will find a true heart to serve the community. The West Volusia NAACP looks forward to working with the members and the community to further progress in America and beyond.

Sean King, President
NAACP West Volusia Branch
