Looking Forward to Black Business Month (Aug)

We are shifting our focus to Black Business Month.

We will kick the Month off with Blackout Day on August 2. Black Business Month is a celebration to support, acknowledge, and appreciate black-owned businesses and all they represent in the country’s continual striving for inclusion: diversity and equality.

Although Black Business Month is a special time for acknowledging and supporting Black-owned businesses, we should support these businesses throughout the year.
