THE BLACK LINKS GLOBAL GROUP OF COMPANIES and affiliated organisations are an amalgamation of integrated but autonomous and independent entities that operate on national and international markets using co-operative methods in terms of their structure and operations.
BLACK LINKS is a business-based initiative that integrates the social, cultural and economic values by autonomous and independent entities, operating as a charitable cooperative and with a history that reaches back before its creation into a time when Africa (‘Afri’ and ‘ka’ meaning ‘land of burning souls’) was known as Meritah or Tahmeri ( meaning ‘beloved land’). It has been created for and by people of colour.
Black people are people of colour; the exactness is simplified to ‘melanin dominant people having afro hair’.
