The great Dr. Webb "Mr. Buy Black" Evans, founder of the United American Progress Association made his transition Feb. 23rd, at the age of 101 years old at 5:00pm at Mercy Hospital, in Chicago, Illinois, according to Min. Rahim "Sax Preacher" Aton.
He was most known as "Mr. Buy Black" due to his daily efforts getting people to "Buy Black" as a method to get Blacks off the economic bottom. He states that "anybody can come to this country and within a short time they are doing better than Black African Americans."
Responding to those that say they don't hear other races telling their people to shop with their race, he said "they don't have to be told because they are already doing it without being told.
In November 2012 Dr. Webb Evans appointed Minister Rahim Chesed Aton, Founder of the Temple of Mercy Association as the new President of the UAPA who is currently working on a food co-operative supermarket.
(Dr. Webb Evans is a long-time supporter of The Black Star Project.)
