Why We Exist
We exist for when the trend is over.
Black Owned Everything is more than just a platform or marketplace. What started as an Instagram page has become a movement; a medium for creating meaningful and long-lasting participation between Black business, community, and excellence. It is not ephemeral, trend-based, or short-lived.
Our mission is to elevate the visibility of Black owned brands.
Black businesses have fought exclusion, systematic oppression, and active disenfranchisement for decades. Our goal is to change the narrative and to invite you to support Black owned businesses, celebrate Black creators, and participate in an inclusive, unified community” - Zerina Akers
