Next to Juneteenth, Blackout Day is the second biggest unofficial holiday for Black Americans to wield their economic power and support Black-owned businesses.

This year, social media activism has taken on a new meaning and any and every user has taken to their platforms to speak out on behalf of racial injustice in America and spread educational messages to further the agenda of multiple movements striving to campaign for equity in America.

Today, July 7 — formally recognized as #BlackoutDay2020 — is a day dedicated to fostering economic solidarity in response to the continued global uprising against racial injustice.

The largest initiative to come out of this unified economic movement is the outpouring support of Black businesses with an added emphasis on circulating the Black dollar.

Organized by Calvin Martyr — founder of the Blackout Coalition — #BlackoutDay2020 encourages consumers to exclusively support Black-owned businesses, and avoid spending any money outside the Black community.

For this year’s celebration, many Black-owned businesses are taking to Instagram to promote their brand, build up their following, and get their products directly into the hands of consumers.

To help uplift these online Black-owned businesses, check out our list of Black-owned brands you can shop with via Instagram below:

Whenever we design an interior, we ask about culture. We want to understand the homeowners – who they are. For the home of @daniebb3, we found out that her partner has Haitian heritage. That helped guide aspects of the design. It’s why we incorporated these pieces by Australian artist, @brentrosenberg. His paintings of beautiful women wearing colorful headwraps felt like an incredible way to honor the strong women of Haiti and his heritage. See more of this interior in issue 3 of #aphrochicmag. 📷 @royancooper #aphrochicdesigns #homesweethome #brooklyn #interiordecor #interiordesign #homedecor #home #decor #nycdesigner #designlife #interiors #homestyle #designer #decorate #interiordetails #homebeautiful #aphrochic #interiorinspo #decorideas #designinspo #shareblackstories #instastyle #instadecor #createyourlife #interiorlovers #liveinthelight #inspiration #haitianflagday #haiti

I’m so excited about #blackbotanistweek 🌸 @omymymaya is a botanist I just started following and she is doing Black Botanist Week from July 6th – 11th. Swipe to learn more. Since there are so many new followers here, #blackbotanistweek is a great opportunity to explain exactly what I do. I know there are a lot of questions so I will sum it up as much as possible and go into more detail throughout the week. I’m a floral lover and found a way to turn my love of flowers into an art career. Now I haven’t formally studied botany, but since starting my plant journey, I committed to learning as much as I can about plant life. I create floral plaster and paper reliefs and hand stamped floral prints of my artworks. I’ve been playing with flowers for as long as I can remember. Now that we are living on 2 acres of land, I’m able to explore plant life on a whole new level. We moved to Bucks County so that I could plant and grow my own flowers. We spent the last 12 months picking and choosing flowers I would want to create a collection with. It’s been a full year of planning. Matter of fact, we are already planning the next two years, because when it comes to gardening, you have to plan for the distant future. There are still flowers that haven’t bloomed yet, because they take a few years to establish themselves on the land. With the help of my hubby @thephillywineguy and my friend and personal photographer @ona__ella we will document my journey and the plants I connect with. ♥️ 📸 @ona__ella

I don't know about you but these days I have to really insist on prioritizing my self-care. Seems like because my beautiful family and I are now blessed to in each other's presence every hour of every day, I am available to tend to their every need…whenever they need it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I did a little experimenting and found that I found space late-night to secure quiet undisturbed space to myself. If you're up and in need of a little group self-care, please join us Monday nights for a DIY face masking session and discusson on the self-care tip of the week.. Bring your favorite mask or DIY concoction and other beauty products. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *******10pm PST*******⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The ones I'll be using are made from simple ingredients found in my kitchen combined with products from my line. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pictured here is a brightening mask made with honey, clay, pineapple juice, and turmeric. Also my DIY green tea eye patches. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ : ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #skincareroutines #greenskincare #botanicalskincare #cleancosmetics #plantbasedskincareproducts #naturalskincareroutine #clearskintips #skincareroutine #dewyskin #greenbeautycommunity ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #naturalbeautycare #goodskin #healthandbeauty #skinfirst #bossmomlife #bossmoms #40plusandfabulous #curvyandconfident ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greycurls #curlygreyhair #bohomom #blackbusinesswoman #buyblack #buyfromablackwoman #blackwomanowned #blackowned #healthandbeauty #blackownedbusiness #blackexcellence #supportblackbusiness
