Black History Month 2021 Black Owned Business Guide


 Happy Black History Month 2021 everyone! To celebrate, The Dro Show is featuring another Black Owned Business Guide (here's the one from the holiday season you can still enjoy). As per usual, we want to encourage readers to support Black owned businesses and circulate their dollars within Black American communities. 

The celebration that started as Negro History Week by Carter G. Woodson in 1926 has exploded into a phenomenon where the achievements, hidden histories, socio-political struggles and wins of Black people, particularly from America is enjoyed. Despite systemic racism, Black business creation and ownership has exploded within the past decade. No more "Black owned businesses are unprofessional" talk over here because the effort, craftsmanship, and service has been amped up in abundance. 

Take a look at some amazing Black owned and operated that you can support this month and beyond!
