Every February, we celebrate Black History Month and reflect on the accomplishments, legacies, and contributions of Black Americans. Black History Month is a great time to support Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs. Use your spending power to support these businesses in Northwest Indiana this month, and all year round. Visit their locations, make a purchase, and tell a friend!
