“Do you know what [this month] is?” Since 2004, August has been earmarked as an opportunity to celebrate Black business owners and entrepreneurs in. In honor of Black Business Month, Amazon has introduced an updated Buy Black Store, which this year is themed “Black Is Remarkable – A Celebration of Black Culture.”
The branded microsite delivers by not only showcasing dope brands and their unique wares; but also spotlighting the dedicated creatives and business mavens behind them. The site also leads to an Entertainment page, where shoppers can discover new authors, shows and films, and even merch from some of their faves; as well as a designated destination for Black business owners who might be interested in partnering with Amazon in the future.
Let’s be for real though: we were there to shop! Check out some of our favorite finds:

Friend, if no one told you, it has been timeout for trying to preserve your favorite bottle of wine by fighting to re-insert its cork.
