Supporting Black Owned Businesses in Jacksonville

A Story By

📷 @visitjacksonville 🎨: Marsha Hatcher, Suzanne Pickett, and Annelies Dykgraaf

Over 20,000 days ago Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” 

We cannot say it better. Others say that we will get back to “normal” soon. We hope that never happens. We are the architects of our future. It’s our choice to let those led by self-serving political interests define our normal. We choose NO to normal. Our “new normal” is what we make it. 

Connecting the World Through Events is our Mission because events are where we bond around common interests and experience life together. Together. No matter the color of our skin. Together. Fractures can be repaired. As our city begins to open we hope that you can find joy in connecting with one another safely.

Check out these awesome Black Owned Businesses in Jacksonville you can support!
