LIST OF BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES IN LA

LIST OF BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES IN LA

 

Showing support and solidarity for Black peers/friends/neighbors/colleagues can come in many forms, but one tangible way to express instant support, especially on a personal and local level, is to buy from Black-owned businesses here at home in Los Angeles. Between restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, salons, creative services, and the simply inspiring folks who make up a large thread in the beautiful fabric of this city – there are TONS of Black-owned businesses to support.

 

I have devised a “database” of sorts – one I will continue to update and add to as I learn more. So I hope you’ll join me in making the choice to support these businesses (as you can). Small businesses in LA need the love more now than ever, and if you have the means to do so, I encourage you to consider spending your money at these Black-owned establishments.
