Please Support Our Community’s Black-Owned Businesses

June 1, 2020
Please support black-owned businesses in our community. Eat there. Shop there. Pick up food. Buy a gift card. Write a Yelp review. If they are not currently open, pledge to go there when they open. We have built the list below from previous coverage, social media and the Google doc shared by the Los Angeles Times.
 
If you have businesses to add to this list, please comment below, or reach out via the contact information at the end of this story. Know that we will continue to update it, and we see it as a living, breathing document.
 
If you are an owner and there is any way Mid City Big Life can support you or promote your business, please reach out.
 
We are proud to support black-owned businesses in our community and in LA. Black Lives Matter.
 
Businesses are listed in alphabetical order. Please call or check social media for current hours, as they may have changed due to COVID-19.
