Black Owned Business


What fading memory I have of my beautiful Aunt Georgia still makes an impression on me today. Visiting her at her apartment in Maryland as a small child, by all appearances, she seemed to be just another single black mother struggling to make ends meet. It was small, nothing special, and just below it was the small shop she worked in. The shop was filled with knick-knacks and gadgets, again nothing special or appealing to a five or six-year-old girl. I’d been there with my mother and two years older sister a few times. But this would be the last time we visited together before learning of her passing. Yet, the memory of her being sweet, to me at least, with a beautiful fro remains my everlasting impression of her.

During this last visit, I learned, and oh what a shock it was to find out, that she owned the shop she worked in. Suddenly, in my eyes, she was living in the lap of luxury. Even at the young age of five or six, the thought of her success crippled me with fear. The message had sunken in that Black people weren’t allowed to dream of becoming business owners. We weren’t allowed to dream of wealth and weren’t allowed to dream of being more successful than the average White male in our neighborhood. Where these thoughts came from is still a mystery. It could have been a cousin, a history book, the news, etc. What is clear is that the moment I found out Black women could own their own business, my destiny was set!
