America’s Largest Black-owned Gift Company Celebrates 25 Years With Release of Holiday Gift Catalog

What started as a home based company with only three Christmas cards over two decades ago, has flourished into a prosperous company offering over 600 products to customers around the world. Whether you are looking for something that brightens your home like a vibrant piece of canvas art from world renowned artist DD Ike, or the perfect gift for any woman in your life that deserves to be treated royally, such as a woven tote bag from our new Queen collection, African American Expressions has taken pride in becoming a veritable one-stop shop for any of your gifting needs. What AAE offers, however, goes deeper than just having a wide range of products. 

“I started the company with the idea that we could do better than what other companies were doing by creating cards and products the way we [African Americans] see ourselves, instead of the way the companies see us.” — Greg Perkins. 

For as long as it has been around, Gregory Perkins, owner and founder of AAE, has wanted the company to be about more than just a profit, which is why AAE has made each and every one of their products — from Christmas cards, wall calendars, figurines, home decor, and so much more — available to sell as a fundraising program! Since it’s inception, African American Expressions has generated millions of dollars for hundreds of schools, churches and other varying organizations across the country, as well as benefited countless individuals who have used the program since 1991. By making these products readily available for any and everyone to sell, African American Expressions is able to provide money back into the communities that need it most. To ensure that customers get their catalogs early, African American Expressions strongly suggests that customers go online to and get their orders in today. 

With products suited for all budgets, from limited edition memorabilia such as our Limited Edition 2017 Michelle Obama calendar to a pocket sized reminder for the day to day featuring our Special Edition 2017 Obamas imagery, the newest edition of AAE’s Holiday Fundraiser catalog has a product to suit every cause, and every customer. As each year passes, the fundraiser program and the company as a whole, has continued to rapidly grow and it is already predicted that sales for the company will have risen 20% by years end, proving that once again African American Expressions is the go-to company for all your black gift needs.
