America, we’ve got lots of problems right now. There is a domestic terrorist war being waged against Black Americans. Just last night, white supremacists opened fire on peaceful protestors in Minneapolis, wounding five. In solidarity with Black people, and in protest of keeping employees away from their families on Black Friday, we’ve put together this handy gift guide. Instead of shopping in stores on Black Friday, please consider shopping online at one of these Black-owned businesses.
