Black Owned Business Directory
As a young black woman, I readily support and promote black owned businesses. By clicking on this article, you’ve expressed your interest to do the same and I’d like to make it as easy as possible for you. In an effort to combat the negative attitude caste on black owned businesses (some shoppers citing lack of professionalism and high prices), I created this directory to share some of my favorite black owned businesses that I have vetted and that I frequently purchase from. I have listed quite a few that carry quality products, exhibit excellent customer service, and create work and wealth for black employees! Enjoy!
