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.
The economy has been difficult for small business owners since March of 2020. 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!
