Supporting local businesses and creators over giant corporations is incredibly important, arguably now more than ever. So many small and black-owned businesses are incredibly well-loved and provide top-quality goods and services, but do not at all have the exposure which they deserve. The personalized customer service and creative innovation found among small business owners is unmatched!
By supporting black businesses, you divest your dollar from the problematic and corrupt practices of large companies. You can also play a role in contributing to the shrinking of the racial wealth gap, put in place by systemic and prejudice practices, like redlining and job discrimination. This support lends to greater opportunity, generational wealth, property ownership, and impactful savings.
Online shopping has been a saving grace for so many people over the past year. Here are some small and black owned businesses that deserve your support.
