Woman Creates Online Hub for Kansas City Black Owned Businesses

Chelsey said they’re moving from having just a digital footprint to hosting actual in-person events. “On our directory, we have different categories ranging from entertainment all the way down to food. We are working together to highlight and bring more features to them,” Chelsey said. “It really helps the community be more aware of what they do and what they offer and make it a lifestyle and not just a movement.” The first event is called Juneteenth Jump-Off and will feature more than 17 Black vendors.          

Chelsey said the page not only provides a platform to learn about new places and people, but also a support system for new and growing businesses. Community rallies behind Kansas City’s only Black-owned bookstore

Since its creation in July 2020, the page has grown to a following of more than 4,000 people. “I noticed that there were not any Black-owned businesses available readily for me to support. So I went on social media, went through Google and was having difficulty finding those businesses. I told my husband, I’m just going to go head and start a page tonight,” said Chelsey M., the founder of KC Black Owned.

“I’ve learned about so many of these smaller Black businesses I didn’t even know existed definitely from the KC Black Owned directory,” Johnson said. The event will be held at The Nelle, located at 1818 McGee St. in the Crossroads Art District, from 3-7 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. Johnson is not only a participating vendor for the inaugural event, she also helped plan it. She said she understands the need.

Kansas City’s KPRS part of history, as oldest black-owned radio station in the country “It gives us a chance to showcase Black-owned businesses in ways they maybe haven’t been before. We get to see the community out front and having a good time,” said Nicole Johnson, owner of Our Gathering Studio.
