For those looking to support Black-owned businesses, there’s an app for that.
“Black businesses are vital to the community, and the more that we can support them, the better those communities will be,” said Leonard J. Young, Founder of Delaware Black News. “That includes education, family, medical, just all those situations where we reinvest in the community. I definitely believe, in a lot of neighborhoods, a lot of cities, a lot of states, when we reinvest in those Black communities, those Black communities give back as well.”
Driven by the idea that Black-owned businesses along Market and Shipley street were difficult to identify or locate when he was growing up, the app, of particular note, features a GPS locator to help users find and support nearby Black-owned businesses.
