One of the most crucial aspects of the past tumultuous years is that many people have begun to actively seek to buy from black-owned businesses. And the story supports the various freedoms that can come from owning or buying a small business. In fact, in Malcolm X’s 1964 speech, “The Ballot or the Bullet,” the activist proposed that one way for black people to transcend racism is to control their community’s economy. He encouraged blacks to own, operate, and patronize black-owned businesses as a way to find political freedom. For those who are not black, buying black designer clothing brands and black-owned fashion boutiques is a real and lasting way to provide support – not to mention that black-owned businesses in all sectors pave the way for creativity and innovation. Putting money in the hands of black business owners keeps funds within black communities and helps reinvest in its members.

Here, we’ve rounded up a range of both up-and-coming and established black-owned brands, from Telfar to Fe Noel, Wales Bonner to Buzzoms.
