Black History Month: Salutes Black Owned Business On The Internet:

Soul-Patrol Newsletter

Hi, this is Bob Davis owner of Soul-Patrol and I have a special message for owners of Black Owned Businesses here on the internet.

Hopefully you will recall this statement I made in the last Soul-Patrol Newsletter with respect to one of the things we are planning for Black History Month...

A special focus on Black Owned Internet Business : This is the second of our special mailings during February to spotlight specific Black Owned Businesses here on the internet who are doing the right kind of things. If you are such a business owner, please feel free to contact me via email at: and find out how you can become a part of this program on a "first come first served basis"!

Well I was dead serious and today I am proud to present to you the second of these businesses to be be spotlighted during Black History Month 2004
We are doing this for three reasons:
1. We want to put a spotlight on Black Owned Businesses that are doing some good things that you may be unaware of right here on the internet.
2. We want to encourage YOU to support these businesses by going to their websites, learning more about their products/services and to STRONGLY consider making a purchase from them
3. If you are thinking about starting your own business, we want to encourage YOU to stop thinking about it, and to DO IT.

Lets see if we can make something good happen for

Just wanted to give out some props for one of OUR own!
As you are all aware, the MEGA TRAVEL WEBSITE: is one of the sponsors of:

* The Soul-Patrol Digest Magazine
* The Soul-Patrol Newsletter
* The Soul-Patrol East Coast Convention is yet another part of the ever expanding universe of 100% INDEPENDENT BLACK OWNED websites that are actually ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING POSITIVE, against all of the odds.
We salute them not only for the accomplishments to this point in time, but also for the potential of what they can do in the future.
