BRAG!The Black Retail Action Group, Inc. also known as BRAG was founded in 1970 as an outgrowth of a similar organization, the National Negro Retail Advisory Group (NNRAG). Although the latter organization folded, some of its members felt that the Group’s basic concepts were nonetheless valid and should, therefore, be perpetuated. Thus, with a nucleus of NNRAG members, the Black Retail Action Group was born.
BRAG was introduced to the Philadelphia University Campus as a new chapter this semester by the lovely
