Written by: Brady Drake

In the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, many of us in the Fargo-Moorhead community have been experiencing pain, anger and a renewed desire to take action. The ongoing fight against police brutality has finally caught the attention of our nation, spurred by the deaths of Breonna TaylorEric GarnerPhilando CastileMike BrownTamir RiceTrayvon Martin and too many more. While there is nothing we can do to reverse what has already happened, we can come together to ensure our future is changed and this will never happen again.

Beyond educating yourself, having discussions about racial justice with others and donating to local organizations, one of the most direct and sustainable ways to support the Black community is to shop at Black-owned businesses, many of which have also been disproportionally affected by the coronavirus pandemic. While this will be a long, ongoing discussion and fight for justice, Fargo-Moorhead residents can lend support to Black-owned businesses right now. From restaurants and bars, to educational resources and nonprofits, our community is home to a number of incredible Black-owned businesses.

To help you do this, we’ve created a directory of Black-owned businesses you can support. This directory has been compiled with the help from our community, especially members of LadyBosses of Fargo-Moorhead and Fargo Mom. We are dedicated to keeping this list up to date and accurate, as we know we probably missed some. For updates and suggestions, please email us at [email protected]
