Let's Take A Stroll Down Brooklyn's 'Black Girl Magic' Street
Now it’s not officially called Girl Magic Street,’ yet! However, Bed-Stuy’s Tompkins Ave. has turned into a hub for Black and minority-women owned businesses.
Fifteen Black women (yes, FIFTEEN), over the last couple of years, have opened business ranging from a wellness center, clothing boutiques, natural beauty products and more.
While female empowerment was the main goal for the women involved, this tribe of Black women also gives back, while creating a sense of community on the block.
They are hoping to truly be an inspiration by spreading ‘Black Girl Magic,’ one city block at a time.
Black-woman owned businesses on ‘Black Girl Magic’ Street include:
- Calabar Imports: fashion clothing brand Made In Nigeria.
- Sincerely Tommy: clothing boutique with a neighborhood coffee shop attached.
- Life Wellness Center: wellness center focused on yoga, massages and acupuncture.
- Make Manifest: co-working space for creatives to host, sell and market their products.
- Radical Women BK: apparel boutique and safe space.
