In case you hadn't already heard, August is National Black Business Month. (Although, we think you should be supporting Black businesses all year round.)

Le'Kiesha French, Carmen Mays, and Makisha Boothe are all members of the Black Innovation Alliance, a group that seeks to support Black innovators and strives towards equity in the innovation economy. Now more than ever, it is crucial that Black businesses are not only receiving the support from customers and consumers but from entities such as the BIA for direct, structural resources and support from the ground up.
