WHERE We Buy Black is meant to serve as a shopping assistant, helping to spotlight a select number of Black owned companies in industries commonly sought after. These features aren’t meant to be an exhaustive listing of companies. Rather, we hope to give our readers a quick jumpstart on buying Black and most importantly, developing the habit of searching for Black owned companies, FIRST.

Before you make a purchase, check WHERE We Buy Black features here on our blog to see if we have any companies that you can utilize. As we roll out various features, we will also continue to expand on them. In other words, if you see a feature with 10 companies, that won’t be the final list – we will add to it as time goes on. As we add to those features, we will continue to promote them to our audience on a regular basis. If you are a business owner and you don’t see your company featured on a WHERE We Buy Black editorial and you’d like it to be, contact us at [email protected] to inquire about inclusion.
