30+ Black-Owned Businesses to Support Now and Always

While justice-demanding protests and Instagram blackouts have taken center stage this week, if change is going to happen, support of the Black community can’t stop there. If you too are wondering what you can do as an ally beyond pressing the “post” button or making a donation, the answer is clear: it’s extremely important now (and always) to support small, Black-owned businesses.

We’ve rounded up 36 brands owned by BIPOC (a large majority of them owned by women)—where you can purchase health and beauty products, clothing, jewelry, home decor, spices, wine, books, and so much more. So instead of placing yet another order for these things on Prime, consider shopping at one of these small businesses instead.
