In today’s economy, most people are beginning to understand the importance of supporting black-owned businesses. It Is important to do this locally to keep money floating within the community, however supporting black-owned businesses internationally is just as important!

According to the State of Minority Business Enterprise, only 15% of businesses are minority-owned in the US. While we don’t have global statistics about black-owned businesses, it’s important to support these businesses in every community. By doing so we celebrate black culture, support the local economy wherever we are.

Research

Depending on the area you are traveling in you may be able to guess if a store is black-owned, and there’s nothing wrong with walking inside and simply asking the employee working. However, if you’re not in a predominantly black area, and usually there isn’t a sign on the door stating that business and black-owned, supporting these businesses may call for a bit of digging. A quick google search of “black-owned businesses near me” should give you ideas of stores in the area you’re traveling.
