Black-owned art galleries that you can support

Black-owned art galleries that you can support

As the world starts to open back up again amidst two pandemics, COVID19 and racism, it’s important to put your money where your mouth is. If you love contemporary art and also want to support black-owned businesses — this is for you. Black art has been an outlet of self-expression as well as a direct reflection of their blackness and their social and political experience throughout the Civil Rights movement all the way to now — the New Civil Rights movement. Supporting black gallerists, artists, and dealers keeps alive a legacy and influence that we all need. Here’s a list of U.S. Black-owned galleries across the country. Hopefully, you’ll find yourself inspired and moved by your visits.
