Black-owned businesses have been some of the most negatively impacted by COVID-related restrictions. Unfortunately, their long history of racial inequality has only been exacerbated by the ongoing state of emergency.
But we can make a difference!
By shopping with black businesses, we're able to help give these black owners some economic stability during a very volatile time for their business. What's more, we can go beyond making a single purchase and take it a step further to become loyal patrons of these brands, shops, restaurants, and services.
So, pay attention to where you shop and who the folks behind the brand are! Support businesses that are doing good things for their community and trying to make a positive difference in the world we live in. That said, below are a few fantastic black-owned businesses you can support in 2021:
