Rose (owner and creator) and Genius Black from Black Owned Maine called in this AM to discuss the creation of their website, which is a directory of Black owned businesses in Maine.
“These businesses are made up of groups of people who may not have their voice heard in other forms… It’s important that we give Black businesses our money right now. It’s important that we support our Black people in any way that we can and this is our way to do that.” – @roseofbom
“This is a resource you can use to support! Protesting in the streets is not for everyone.
But you can make a difference! You can get what you need, and you can support Black people with real resources. If you feel inclined to donate, please reach out to individual businesses and organizations.” – @realgeniusblack
