Supporting Charlotte’s Black-owned businesses

Reggae Central in Plaza Midwood

There are many ways to join in the fight for racial equality. You can donate money to a local grassroots organization. You can educate yourself and have conversations about racial justice.

But one of the most direct ways to support the Black community is to shop at Black-owned businesses, many of which have also been disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

We’ve compiled a list of restaurants and shops and will continue to add to it. If you would like your Black-owned business added to the list, please email your information to

Some businesses may not be operating at full capacity due to COVID-19, so we suggest using the links provided below to confirm business hours and services being offered.
