Read about Black-owned businesses that make up the community!

The community of Jackson is so lucky to have such a strong local business scene. We wouldn’t be who we are without the businesses that make Jackson strong and unique. With this month being Black History Month, we want to recognize just a few of the incredible black-owned businesses that make Jackson the rich community it is. We want to recognize and build up these businesses, not only in February but every month of the year.
