Are you looking to support Black-owned businesses? As we continue to recognize and celebrate Black History Month, we want to encourage you to support Black-owned businesses. When you support a woman or Black-owned small business, you are supporting gender and racial economic empowerment and helping to stimulate the overall economy. Investing in woman-owned businesses helps create opportunities for owners and the families and communities they support.
Here is a curated list from the DC Women’s Business Center’s Woman-Owned Gift Guide of Black, women-owned businesses in the DMV metropolitan area to celebrate Black History Month!
