10 Boston Black-Owned Businesses To Support This Black Friday (& Beyond)

This year, there’s been a conscious effort to support Black-owned businesses with a special push to reclaim Black Friday as “Buy Black Friday” 

Big corporations will, most likely, survive the pandemic without the help of our Black Friday shopping, so why not help out small businesses in your local small businesses instead, especially the demographic hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic?

They need our help more than ever. Let’s get shopping!
