20 Black Owned Brands to Support

Black owned brands deserve to be supported not only today, or this week when it's "trendy", but all times of the year, every year. To help you out with your black-owned shopping ventures, I've composed a list of 20 black owned brands for you to support financially and socially!

While finding the means and resources to compile this list of black owned businesses, I realized that I am also guilty of not shopping from black owned brands. However, after discovering these brands, I am happy to say that I have a few more places that I'm excited to shop from in the near future!

Thank you all for deciding to make a change, not only in educating yourselves on black owned brands, but in committing to shop from these brands so that they get the recognition they deserve.

Until next time,


"No matter what we give up or do as penance for sins, or to earn favor with God, if we are not putting God first and loving our neighbor, then we are failing."
