The Central Ohio metropolitan area has approximately 300,000 residents of African descent. According to BlackDemographics.com, Columbus has the 29th largest concentration of Black people in the U.S., comprised of African-Americans, Jamaicans, Senegalese, Ghanaians, Nigerians, Haitians, Ethiopians and Eritreans to name a few. Columbus has the second largest Somali population in the nation with estimates as high as 80,000. In the shadows of constant injustice (ex. Columbus police killing of 23 yr. old #HenryGreen and 13 yr. old #TyreKing), brothers and sisters throughout Ohio are determined to redirect dollars toward the Black community.

#BuyBlackOhio is a hashtag created by a coalition of local organizations and community activists who understand the importance of economic empowerment. They are part of a larger nationwide movement that includes #BankBlack and #BuyBlack. Take a look and support the following businesses that Central Ohio has to offer. Also, be sure to share your favorite Black-owned Ohio establishments on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram using the hashtag #BuyBlackOhio. Enjoy.
