There are many ways to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Making donations to local non-profit organizations, joining a protest, and so much more. Another way is to shop at Black-owned businesses, many of which have also been impacted by the pandemic.

We have created a marketplace to amplify Black-owned businesses in our retail network, which you can support and shop today. Below is a sample of brands from the comprehensive directory found here.

The Lip Bar

The Lip Bar was founded by Melissa Butler as a result of the beauty industry’s lack of diversity and inclusion and excessive amounts of chemicals. The company offers vibrant, vegan and cruelty-free lipstick selections with the intention to “help change the way you think about beauty.”

Coco and Breezy

Twin designers Corianna and Brianna Dotson founded Coco and Breezy Eyewear, which has become a hit among the entertainment and fashion world. The handcrafted designer optical glasses and sunglasses have been fashioned by celebrities such as Prince, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and more.

Base Butter offers crowdsourced skincare products that are easy to use and safely improve the overall health of your skin. With a mission to help make skincare easy for oily and combo skin types, Founders ​She’Neil Johnson and Nicolette Graves write that “with every Base Butter purchase you’re agreeing to help black women realize their potential.”

Studio 189 produces African and African-inspired content and clothing. Co-founded by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah, the brand works with artisanal communities that specialize in traditional craftsmanship techniques and focuses on empowerment, creating jobs, and supporting education and skills training.
