Support Black Businesses & Creatives

Last week I asked my YouTube community to help me compile a big list of Black-owned businesses to support! The original post and comments can be found here but I’ve created an organized list for your shopping and supporting convenience!

Of course this is not a comprehensive list; I consider this a fun place to start!

If you can’t afford to shop, you can still support by following their social media and spreading the word about their business!

(I purposefully didn’t describe too much. Go on a clicking spree! Let their products and work speak for themselves!)
