One great way to celebrate Black History Month is to support Black owned business – this month and throughout the year!
With February being Black History Month, let’s get in the habit of shopping local and supporting our Black-owned Bay Area businesses. At the link above, you’ll find a slew of businesses that families love, from vegan pizza to bookstores to DJ lessons. Snag some gift cards, buy yourself a cupcake and support these businesses now and always!
