Juneteenth has been recognized as a holiday to celebrate the freedom of African Americans who hadn’t been freed with the Emancipation Proclamation. Many people will patronize African American businesses giving honor to Juneteenth. This support is greatly needed however supporting minority owned businesses can be done throughout the year.
African American women are the fastest growing segment of the population creating businesses. These women oftentimes lack capital and have many other hurdles to overcome in building a successful business.
Here is my personal invitation to you to support a minority owned business when you have the opportunity. When you make this decision you are providing an opportunity for a person to provide for their family and make their dreams come true.
