Guide to Black Owned Local Businesses to Support this Holiday


buy blackThis summer, local business woman Cynthia Daniels made history with creating a virtual shopping event on Juneteenth, bringing together 100 black-owned businesses. Now Daniels has started a new movement for this holiday season — Black Business Friday — and we are here for it! (Oh, she’s also the brains behind founding Black Restaurant Week, which has brought over $1 million dollars to black-owned restaurants in the last 5 years).

Memphis is considered a majority-minority city — meaning approximately 63% of residents are Black. AND more than half of the city’s small businesses are also Black owned. But those businesses have struggled to survive and over 30% of Memphis’ Black community continue to live in poverty.

2020 has been difficult, but especially for small businesses. This holiday season, we encourage you to not only shop local, but consider shopping one of these Black-owned businesses. “Choosing 901” is vital to growing our city’s economy!
