Black History Month is a time of reflection, but it’s also a time of positive action. And showing support for a Black-owned business is a way to actively contribute to the overall economic empowerment of Black communities.
Supporting a Black-owned business is something you can do every day. If you love to cook, it’s as simple as purchasing cookbooks by Black authors. If you’re a parent, try incorporating a food history lesson on how Black chefs have changed the way we eat into meal planning. And for avid shoppers, adding items from Black-owned Etsy shops to your cart will elevate the atmosphere of your living space.
