Here at Partake, we're passionate about raising awareness of Black entrepreneurship. We feel it's important to support our peers who found brands and ventures because we know first-hand how difficult it can be for a person of color to start a new business.
In honor of Black History Month, we're taking the time this month to focus on the Black-owned businesses who uplift, inspire, and shape our culture through their products.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite products created by Black entrepreneurs in honor of Black History Month, including:
- Grocery Must-Haves- Stock your kitchen with our favorite Black-owned brands.
- For the Little Ones - Help create a world at home that's reflective of the diverse world we live in.
- A Welcoming Home - Build a home that reflects your values with these Black-owned businesses.
- And a Few of Our Favorite Indulgences - After the year we’ve had, we all deserve a little indulgence. Here are a few of our Black-owned favorites.
