Black-Owned Businesses Highlighted In Maryland This Month To Help Them Survive Pandemic
It’s Black Business Month and the state is placing the spotlight on Maryland’s Black-owned businesses. WJZ’s Amy Kawata spoke to two popular businesses on why it’s so important to support them, especially now.
Here’s how you can help support not just this month but year-round. From food to breweries to fitness and beauty products, you name it, Maryland has a growing list of Black-owned businesses established in the community.
“Black-owned businesses are an important part of our neighborhood, they create goods and services that we all use,” Ana Hall Defoor, of Maryland Office of Tourism, said. “A lot of these businesses were hit really hard by covid-19.”
