Support Black-Owned Businesses With Exploring Black Meccas

February 6, 2015  |  

A Black Mecca is a city where a good amount of African Americans live and thrive in the community on a daily basis. When you hear of a black mecca you always think of places such as Atlanta and DC but in this new two-part series two MadameNoire editors went to St. Louis to see what they had to offer. We are encouraging locals to support and celebrate small town businesses in the area during black history month!
