Happy Black Friday, Bossip peeps!
Whether or not you believe in spending your hard-earned dollars on gifts the day after Thanksgiving, we think it’s a good time to highlight the importance of supporting some Black-owned businesses today and beyond.
It’s been a rough year for business overall, but did you know that Black businesses are shutting down twice as face as other businesses due to shut downs and economic strife caused by covid-19 this year, according to a CNN study? We wouldn’t feel right without nudging a few folks to spend with Black-owned companies.
