How to Find Black-Owned Businesses Online
These days, it's not too hard to find the history of a company, especially if it's a larger business. If you spend time researching, you can learn when and where the company was founded, who started it, and sometimes what causes they support. Fortunately, resources like the ones here make this process easier when you want to support Black-owned clothing brands — and shop Black-owned businesses in general.
Support Black Owned is a great place to begin your search, whether you're looking for clothing or other items. The site has a directory, and every business in it is meant to be confirmed as Black-owned. In fact, SBO requests that if you come across a listed company that isn't Black-owned, that you let them know so they can inquire about ownership.
Search the directory by category or state. Additionally, the global search allows you to explore the whole directory. Alternatively, you can do a phrase/keyword search if you have something specific you'd like to find. SBO also has an app on the App Store, and it's a great way to find Black-owned businesses online while on the go, and support them on your regular shopping trips.
Similar to SBO, Official Black Wall Street offers a directory to help you find Black-owned businesses. You can search by term, look at categories, and even check locations down to specific states and cities. The site also allows you to toggle either brick-and-mortar or online locations for the stores when you search, so you can figure out the best way to shop.
WeBuyBlack is a marketplace that allows consumers to shop Black-owned businesses directly. Tons of categories are available to purchase from, including clothing for men, women, and kids.

WeBuyBlack also offers boxes filled with different products from Black-owned businesses, as well as a T-shirt to help spread the word about the website. The boxes cost from $41 to $200, and some include options for men or women. They're a great way to check out a variety of products, and can help you decide which ones you like the most.
If you like supporting individual creators, know that Etsy has made it easy by creating a page that features several Black-owned businesses. It's an especially great place to shop original jewelry pieces, as well as clothing items and accessories. And since Etsy has a bunch of indie creators, you'll absolutely find items for every budget.
Black Enterprise develops lists of Black-owned businesses, including the largest Black-owned businesses in the U.S. They split this list into additional categories, including the Top 100, Auto 40, and Financial Services. The lists provide helpful context, including current rank, previous rank, revenue, the number of employees, the name of the CEO, the type of business, and its location.
The bull's-eye retailer has not been shy about committing to inclusion and diversity, and has even forecast plans to spend more than $2 billion with Black-owned businesses by 2025. So it should come as no surprise that they make it easy to shop Black-owned brands on their website now. The Black Beyond Measure page features specific categories, including hair care, beauty, toys and activities, home, grocery, baby and essentials, and pets.
That same page also highlights new arrivals from Black-owned brands, and provides a link to learn more, and another one to "Join Us." Target's "Join Us" page offers links where first-year students at historically Black colleges and universities can apply for scholarships, where businesses can apply for Target Accelerators, and where businesses can register with Supplier Diversity so that their items can be sold through the retailer.
Shopping Amazon can be daunting at the best of times, but especially when you're trying to search for Black-owned clothing lines. Fortunately, Amazon influencer Femme Nouveau put together a list of items that includes accessories from Black-owned brands, along with books, hair care and beauty items, and other products. Obviously, if you track down specific clothing lines you like outside of Amazon, you can always check the online retailer once you know what you're looking for.
