If this year has taught us anything, it is that we must support and invest in our own organizations, services, and businesses if we are going to lay the foundation for our collective liberation.

To make it easier for you to give Black and knock your holiday shopping list out while supporting Black businesses, we have compiled gift and business guide for you. In a time where community building is imperative, you’ll be taking an intentional step towards that and becoming that friend that gives the best gifts.
