Supporting Black Businesses

Spotlighting Black Business as we close out the month of August, National Black Business Month

We are closing out National Black Business Month with a reminder that supporting Black Businesses should be a year round commitment.  My guest this morning is Brittany Jefferson – Owner of Messy Treatz at the National Harbor

August is National Black Business Month and The Waterfront District at National Harbor is proud to welcome two new African-American owned businesses. Messy Treatz opened Saturday, Aug. 22 and The Furlough Cheesecake opened a few weeks ago. Both shops are being operated by African-American women entrepreneurs and they join other African-American owned shops in the Waterfront District including Miguel Wilson, House of JonLei Atelier, New York New York, A Beautiful Closet, ZAAF and BrookieGirl. Also in the Waterfront District is The Brass Tap, an African-American owned craft beer bar with more than 150 craft beers from around the world.
