How can you support your local Black-owned Business?


Frequent Black-Owned Businesses

By purchasing from a minority owned business, you are actively supporting the owner, as well as supporting economic growth within the Black community. Additionally, every dollar spent helps keep money circulating within the local neighborhood while creating more job opportunities for people in the area. Consistent consideration will increase awareness of the value of Black businesses.



Share Your Positive Opinion Online
