There has been a racial reckoning in the country since the death of George Floyd. There have been initiatives, corporations focusing on racial justice and equity including movements to support Black-owned businesses. Even with that support, Covid-19 nearly destroyed half of the Black small businesses in the country. However, one new Milwaukee company called Bronze Box aims to help some of these small Black-owned businesses here and throughout the Midwest.
