For the past few years, there has been a battle cry in our community to spend our dollars with Black owned businesses, as opposed to the usual suspects.

Well this year, we’re inviting you to take Black Friday a step further.  We created a list of Black owned businesses from various parts of the African Diaspora that would welcome your support, no matter where you are on the globe.

Take a look at our selection of some of the best of what the international Black community has to offer.
