A Message From The Founder Of Support Black Owned
Hello, I’m Herbert Lee, Founder and Administrator for SupportBlackOwned.com .
Now that we have reached the end of National Black Business Month, I hope that you enjoyed an increase in sales as well as higher profits this month. While it is a joy to take these 31 days of summer as a time to acknowledge and appreciate black-owned businesses across the nation, our mission at supportblackowned.com is to make sure black-owned businesses are championed, promoted, and advocated for year-round.
Although I own a directory featuring over 10,000 black-owned businesses, there are 3.12 million Black-owned businesses in the United States, generating $206 billion in annual revenue and supporting 3.56 million U.S. jobs, according to the Brookings Institution report based on 2022 Census data.
I am always excited to get out and discover new businesses in my hometown, but I’m just as thrilled to be introduced to new black-owned restaurants, black-owned service providers, and black entrepreneurs of all walks of life when you create new listings or give me personal recommendations. I look forward to staying in touch with all of you and am very grateful for your support over the years.
Make sure to check back frequently as we add new tools to our Business Center and new businesses to our directory. Enjoy the rest of your summer and have a prosperous fall!
