Black Business Month (BBM) Marching2March is a continuous campaign of the OvergrondRR!!® movement.

The mission of the Overground RR!!® is the economic freedom of the Black community, and BBM/M2M is one of its signature campaigns. Specifically, the mission the ORR is to empower the Black community by increasing the share of the Black economy controlled by the Black community.
