Spending money with Black-owned businesses is essential all year round, but ensuring these businesses receive Black dollars is at an all-time high for the holidays. Shopping at places made for us and by us makes it an even better experience because we know the items are made with Black people in mind.
For the last week of National Entrepreneurship Month, we decided it’s essential to shop with brands that highlight our wants and needs as consumers. The number of Black-owned businesses has skyrocketed since the 2020 pandemic, and it’s only right to continue to spotlight some businesses that have us ready to slay. Here are some of our picks for businesses to spend coins with.
