In an effort to amplify Black voices in our midst, we created this directory of Black Owned Businesses on the Seacoast with the help of MANY. While there are many helpful directories for surrounding areas, we wanted to provide something for our Seacoast to encourage you to always shop local!
Many thanks to the members of the Facebook group “The (un)Official City of Portsmouth, NH” for much of this information.
