As the majority of social media mutes itself to allow Melanated voices to rightfully take centerstage, we wanted to express our solidarity. Our editors, contribu bloggers, advertisers and readers run the gamut of all colors, ethnicities and backgrounds and we stand together with our marginalized brethren. To honor the memories of those unjustly taken by brute force, we’ll be spotlighting businesses of our Black community members. If you are a black owned business, we’d love to hear from you. Let’s use this platform for good and give our black community the support and love they deserve. And because we love nothing more than taking action, we’ve included some businesses in this roundup who are generously donating 100% of proceeds to furthering the justice movement. We’ll also highlight some accounts to follow to help start the necessary conversations we need to have with our kids. Now is the time to shop, support and share. We see you. We hear you. We support you.
perhaps one closest to our hearts is this account which helps parents educate our children through a racially sensitive lens.
