It states that since Black people in the U.S. make up nearly 15% of the population, corporations are being urge to pledge 15% of their shelf space to products from Black-owned businesses. https://www.instagram.com/15percentpledge/?hl=en

This movement is reported to be born out of Black Lives Matters protests and calls on social media to #buyblack.
