Support Black Owned Businesses in Northern Virginia!

As we seek to support our Black-owned Businesses, we remark on the historical representation of Black-owned Businesses in our community. Resilience is the thread that is the core of our enduring structures that have a black-owned foundation, starting with Madam C.J. Walker. To read more of this history at your fingertips, click here.

In our county, we have Black History, too. According to a recent study, the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority notes that:
“[Fairfax County is home to 639 Black-owned employer firms — businesses with payrolls. That is the highest number of any locality in Virginia, according to the most recent Annual Business Survey published by the U.S. Census Bureau. These businesses generated $1.8 billion in annual revenue and employ more than 11,000 people, the Census Bureau reports.“ (source)
Our Black-owned Business directory is made up of Black-owned businesses excited to work with our chapter. The BOBD will continue to grow here on this portal as we feature Black-owned businesses seeking to partner with us! Interested in working with our Reston Chapter for future events and initiatives?
