Spend your money with these Cincinnati Black-owned businesses!

In the African American community, the Black dollar only circulates for six hours. This is far less than the 28-day lifespan of Asian money in their community and the 19-day lifespan of Jewish money in their community. So the next question is, how can we fix this? Check out these Cincinnati Black-owned businesses for unique and thoughtful purchases for gifts or personal needs. These businesses have either a retail space or online presence with items or gift cards for purchase.

  1. Hello, my name is Antroinette Worsham and I am a newly small business owner. I am a native of Cincinnati Ohio. My business is web based. The name of my business is 513 Souvenirs. I am working on my website. However, a few of my items can be found on Facebook by searching 513 Souvenirs. Orders can be placed via email at 513Souvenirs@gmail.com. I appreciate if you would help market my business. I truly believe this is what Cincinnati needs; Souvenir shop. My plan is to have a storefront downtown Cincinnati in 2017.
