  • Funeral Business Big in African American Communities

    Not many people properly prepare for the end. This includes funeral arrangements as well as insurance to take care of expenses and family members. The aftermath is usually an afterthought to be taken care of by those who are left behind. The funeral business in the African American community is one that has a rich and long history.
