Bloomfield Center celebrates Black History; highlighting the business owners that contribute to the rich diversity in our downtown.
Throughout the month of February the Bloomfield Center Alliance introduced social media followers to the many Black owned businesses in Bloomfield Center. Thousands of people liked, commented, viewed, and patronized businesses owned and operated by people of color.
Overwhelmingly, people were surprised to find the varied racial and ethnic representation of BloomfieldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s business community. Reinforcing the idea that representation of all types matters.
There were 10 businesses featured in February's campaign - and 30 business owners who identify as Black or African American in total, here in our Downtown.
