Patronage matters. Supporting Black-owned businesses in Plano not only helps close the racial wealth gap and boost our local economy, it enriches our entire community by exposing residents to a wider world view through Black art, music, food, fashion, books and more.
“It is imperative that all people of color continue to support and pour money and resources into these businesses, not only to level out the playing field but for a long-term economic gain that is not only great for the nation, but also for the livelihood of the business owners and their families,” said Leah Frazier, CEO of Dallas-based Think Three Media.
Whether you are looking for an accountant or a baker, keep the following Black-owned businesses in mind. Because as local writer and photographer Jenice Johnson Williams says, “How you spend your money is powerful.”
“Black commerce deserves to always thrive,” she said. “I can’t teach my kids the importance of our dollars if I’m not spending them on us.”
So as conversations continue for those looking to support people of color, push that momentum forward with your wallet.
