We Buy Black!

It is important to funnel money back into our own communities. The fact of the matter is, we as black people aren’t appreciated especially in places that we choose to spend our money. We’re followed around stores for acting “suspicious” aka being black. We’re treated as less than and even ignored by shop owners. Some go as far as calling the police on us or refusing our business for no reason at all. In an effort to show more appreciation to black business owners and their creativity, I’ve tried to find as many black-owned businesses as possible. Here is a list of Black-owned businesses for everyone to enjoy!!! ***** I will add to this list when I find new businesses *****

Hello I'm Mariah Eskridge and my goal is to encourage those who otherwise wouldn't have the support. I graduated from Illinois State University in May 2019 with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing and Accounting. I've been faced with plenty of situations that I would've loved having someone that I can relate to.
