More than 100 companies are participating in 502 Black Business Week 2022

There are many businesses owned by the Louisville Blacks. From restaurants to salons, to travel agencies, to clothing stores, these businesses showcase the best of Louisville’s entrepreneurs.

From June 19, customers are encouraged to attend 502 Black Business Week, where shoppers can find discounts and special offers on more than 100 Blackville-owned businesses in Louisville.

Founded by Tiandra Robinson in 2018, the fifth 502 Black Business Week will showcase and highlight some of the best businesses owned by blacks in Louisville.

“The hope of a 502nd Black Business Week is that we can begin to close the gap on racial wealth in this country through black entrepreneurship,” Robinson said. “I’m always looking for ways to showcase black-owned businesses in Louisville, and that’s what he’s doing this week.”

The start date of the week-long event, which runs from June 19 to June 25, was not chosen unexpectedly. June 19 is June Day, also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day, and is a nationwide celebration of the liberation from slavery.
