According to our research, Black women are the only group who outpace men of the same race in business ownership in Arkansas. Black women own almost 60% of businesses in the state while their male counterparts own 38%. Despite high rates of business ownership, Black women still see disparities when it comes to wealth, access to capital, and other entrepreneurial resources. This is due to systemic inequities built into our financial, entrepreneurial support, and social systems that were built to disadvantage Black women not only for their gender but also for their race.

As we all reflect on ways we can take action to address systemic racism in our daily lives, we’d like to recommend a simple starting point. Support Black women owned businesses in our state. We have compiled the list below as a resource. If you know of a business that should be listed please submit the business here.
