2020 has been an explosive year so far. Just as we were coming down from the festive high, still hanging on to our New Year’s Resolutions the coronavirus hit. People began shopping local for safety and due to burgeoning sense of loyalty to businesses that were local and/or small.  Then social unrest and protests began in pursuit of justice and equality for black lives, triggered by the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Many of us posted our black squares in solidarity on Black Out Tuesday.  Now what? As protests rage on Black Pound Day was launched. It’s an initiative spearheaded by Swiss World (Music Artist/DJ So Solid Crew) carded for 27th June 2020. Whether you want to shop on the day or extend your arsenal of go to brands; here’s a list of 64 Black owned UK brands that every mother should know.
