August is National Black Business Month!
Black business owners account for about 10 percent of U.S. businesses and 30 percent of all minority-owned businesses. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, that amount to approximately two million companies owned by African Americans. Roughly 40 percent of black-owned businesses are in health care and social services, repair and maintenance, and personal and laundry services. Other categories include advertising firms, auto dealerships, consulting services, restaurants, barbershops, beauty salons, and more.
