Although we strongly suggest making your own Christmas gifts and cards this holiday season for the sake of the environment, sometimes scoring a few deals and shopping for gifts on Black Friday is simply inevitable. That being said, some of the hardest-hit businesses in 2020 — amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — are Black-owned, and therefore, supporting as many of them as possible is absolutely crucial.
