Black Lives Matter has recently announced the launch of backingblackbusiness.com, an online directory and map locator featuring black owned businesses. The site also includes a section for nonprofits and a very user-friendly option for users to add businesses to the site.

Black Lives Matter, a chapter-based national organization working for the validity of Black life, was formed in 2012 after George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Trayvon Martin murder case.

According to the organization, Black Lives Matter is not a moment but rather a movement. “Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this country who actively resist our dehumanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society.”
