The Year of COVID hasn't been kind to many of us, but I for one am happy to see the continuous rise of black businesses through the madness. They are small but mighty! And they aren't letting a pandemic dim their light in any way. There are hundreds, yes HUNDREDS, of new black businesses being opened every week around the country. Black culture and black history continue to prove their resilience through 2020 and beyond.
