In This Together: Community-Driven Marketplace Supports Black-Owned Businesses

Dr. Lakeysha Hallmon launched The Village Market in 2016 to uplift and support Black-owned businesses. Every quarter, the community-driven initiative gathered more than 3,000 people in Atlanta, Georgia, to shop from at least 100 businesses. It's still making an impact on business partners in the midst of the pandemic - and Black Lives Matter protests re-energized and refocused Lakeysha's mission. 'Where we spend, to me, is one of the greatest forms of resistance and advocacy,' Lakeysha says.
