According to the department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency, just one-fourth of minority-owned businesses belong to black people. One of the ways to empower black people, is to patronize black businesses. So this holiday season, make a point to #buyblack and support your community.
Here are a list of seven black-owned companies to give as gifts this holiday season:
