Support these local Black-owned businesses this Black History Month!


Every Black History Month we celebrate the great figures of Black History: Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and countless others. While educating ourselves on the history and learning more about the struggles of the Black community is what the month is all about, it’s also about another thing – supporting Black people. With that in mind, here are some great Black-owned businesses you can support this Black History Month:
