As a result of the unjust deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and countless other unarmed Black people at the hands of law enforcement, activists all over the world have come together to demand justice, equality and actionable policies to combat systemic racism.
Whether it’s through protests, donating to organizations that have been carrying out the mission of the Black Lives Matter movement for years, or simply educating yourself on the issues plaguing the U.S., there are so many ways individuals are showing their support.
Beyond these efforts, supporting Black designers is another major way we can lift up the Black community. Not only will the following Black-owned home brands provide you with unique statement pieces you won’t find anywhere else, it’s also no secret that money talks, and this can be an added step of solidarity.
