It’s always a good time to support black-owned businesses, and in Cincinnati, it’s something easy to do.
There’s no shortage of black-owned restaurants here. You can try desserts, soul food, health-conscious sandwiches and African Halal.
This year’s Black History Month is themed “African Americans and the Vote” to celebrate the 15th Amendment, which gave African American men the right to vote.
Here’s a chance to vote with your dollars and support some local businesses and celebrate black history in the city of Cincinnati.
