Supporting Black Business, The Time is Now

This is a compilation of lists of black owned establishments. I thank all the websites below for making this information readily available!


                                          # BLACKOWNEDMATTERS

“Just as a family is strengthened by each member of the family making a contribution amongst one another, so to is the community strengthened by each member of the community trading and doing business amongst themselves”

Unemployment has always plagued the black community more so than any other community within the social spectrum of America. Just as we, as a courageous black generation has taken upon ourselves the dire responsibility to stand up to the unjust killings of black men and women, under  #BLACKLIVESMATTER,  we should understand that for our lives to have prestige within society, we must also take the responsibility to secure our economic growth. Why do i say this- The reasoning is clear.  Without economic stability, You have very little life to matter, and crime within your community will increase. Statistics have shown throughout modern history that wherever you find poverty,  you find high rates of crime. Wherever, you find high rates of crime, you find great injustice perpetrated upon the members of that community at the hand of those whom deem you humanly, educationally, socially, and economically inferior. So i say to you again, if black lives are to matter, black owned should also matter.

I do not intend to lessen the importance of the black lives matter movement. I simply want to make it known that our black lives become more secure if we add the mindset of economic growth, along with this movement.
