  1. Support of black-owned business is certainly a priority in Boston. It’s a way to support our business class and to break the social isolation of living in New England. A second priority would be to identify and support businesses that hired black supervisors and staff in the metro area. These places merit financial support from the Afro-American consumer for trying to do the right thing.

  2. Oasis Vegan Veggie Parlor in Dorchester opened up in 2017… and Zaz in Hyde Park needs to be on here asap! Oh, and Soleil in Dudley Square!

  3. I’m looking for a carpenter, a mason and a painting company to do work on our home. Have gotten quotes from others but no black owned business. Would like it include such businesses in my search. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
