After The Storm: How To Support Black-Owned Businesses In Texas

Throughout the tumultuous pandemic, Black-owned businesses have created employment opportunities for communities hard hit financially. They’ve provided meals, a sense of community during lonely times, and reiterated the pride of our diverse culture. 

In Texas, the historic winter storm that hit the state last week left millions without power, water, or heat, including some Black-owned businesses. Millions of dollars in damages have been estimated and some are still waiting for their utilities to come back online. 

While residents braved the frigid temperatures, without solid answers from officials, some Black-owned businesses took it upon themselves to continue doing what they do best: serve us. 

From free water distribution to thawing out food trucks to serve free meals, or simply checking in with their followers online to relay information on resources, Black businesses became a beacon of hope for residents of the Lone Star state. 

Here’s a look at some Black-owned businesses in Texas to support and show love to.
