Some of Phoenix's most iconic businesses are Black-owned, and have been ingrained in the city's fabric for decades. Take the Black Theatre Troupe, which has been creating a space for Black-focused performances since the 70s; or the restaurant dynasty of the White family: it spans generations, between Mrs. White's Golden Rule Cafe (which opened in 1964!), LoLo's Chicken & Waffles, and Monroe's Hot Chicken.

In every pocket of Greater Phoenix, you can find a Black-owned business to support. Here's where to find them.
