Community Talk ‘Black Voices’: Small Black Businesses

Community Talk 'Black Voices': Small Black Businesses

On Monday, “Chicago Tonight” co-host and “Chicago Tonight: Black Voices” host Brandis Friedman moderated the latest edition of our “Chicago Tonight: Black Voices” community conversation series.

After Thanksgiving on Thursday, the start of Hanukkah on Sunday, and this weekend’s shopping deals, the holiday season is underway. It’s a period set apart by gathering with friends and family, delicious food and present giving. In the midst of production chain issues, some business owners told clients to start looking for presents and requesting their cherished pastries early. This comes as numerous small businesses are as yet attempting to recuperate from terminations during the pandemic, while additionally confronting labor deficiencies.

She was joined by Siri Hibbler, founder and chair of the Illinois Black Chamber of Commerce, the Black Cook County Chamber of Commerce and the Garfield Park Chamber of Commerce; Lenore Lindsey, owner of Give Me Some Sugah Bakery in South Shore, which has been in the community for 13 years; and Peter Gaona, owner of ReformedSchool, a clothing brand founded in 2013. It has a storefront in the L1 retail store in Washington Park, and the brand is sold in stores across the country.

They discussed how they have been impacted by some of the issues facing so many entrepreneurs and small business owners in the city and across the country.
