Why focus on black owned businesses and products?

Black owned businesses have advanced in number and variety over the past decades.  As an African American, I take pride in and appreciate the historical circumstances in which these businesses have developed.  In putting together this list, I found many products could only be purchased online. Some products were also available at a limited number of brick and mortar locations as described on websites (e.g., where to buy).

This site is organized to provide a road map to shop for certain kinds of products.  The clothing category for example is sub-categorized.  The “high-end designer label” reflects the types of clothes you would find in venues such as New York fashion week.  What I designate as the “fashion” sub-category reflects companies that offer a particular style or brand.  The “emporium” sub-category is distinguished by the variety of what is offered.  Additionally, symbols are used across several product categories.  In some cases a heart (♥) symbol is used when companies indicate they offer products for children or youth.

I hope you find information within this site useful.  I welcome comments.  You can submit comments through the “contact” page.   Also, please like us on Facebook.

Happy Shopping!

Best,

Leslie
