If the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has slowly made you forget what day it is, don't worry. Just know it's always a fantastic day to support Black-owned businesses. In all areas of fashion, beauty, living, wellness, and beyond, Black founders and their brands have long been behind some of the most innovative, successful, and downright coolest trends and products you know and love. Unfortunately, many Black-owned brands, particularly small businesses, rarely get the amount of attention they deserve.
It's high time to shift your focus beyond the same old places you always shop. Instead, draw your attention to brands, both established and emerging, that are not only producing high-quality products to make life better but are also creating a necessary space to support the Black community. And given the ongoing protests in response to police brutality and racial injustice, supporting the Black community by donating and consuming anti-racism resources and supporting Black-owned businesses however you're able to is an effective way to fight against systemic racism and oppression. Keep scrolling for an irresistible lineup of products, exclusively from Black-owned brands, that deserve a spot in your cart right now.
