The Red Book Business Directory

Black women are the fastest-growing segment of business owners in the US. From 2002-2011, the number of businesses owned by black women increased 179% compared with 52% for all women-owned businesses and 20% for all businesses1. COVID-19 may have stalled Black-owned businesses, but it hasn’t stopped them completely.
