It's so crazy how the universe works sometimes. I had the idea to only buy from small, black-owned vendors this Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and poof!- one of my favorite Youtubers comes up with the same idea! Definitely watch the above video to find out her top black owned businesses that she trusts and recommends. And keep reading to find out why you should put the "black" back into Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
1. Investing back into our community
Many small, black-owned businesses are more equipped to invest back into the black community. Because they are small businesses and usually are not tied to a corporation, they are able to invest their money where they see fit. Investing your consumership into their businesses would be allowing the black dollar to continue to circulate in our community.
2. The ability to use products that are for us, by us
This means the products will be catered to people of color. Anywhere from makeup to hair products, these specifically tailored products could be what you need to upgrade your beauty regimen!
3. We should help each other grow
If we don't help one another grow, then who will?
4. Supporting business-owners, as if you were being supported
Because if you're a #GirlBoss we know one day you'll need support as well. Let's support each other's business endeavors!
