Shopping Black-owned businesses might not be as difficult as you think it is, and author Maggie Anderson gives her tips on how we can all buy Black — even for the holidays.

Anderson and her husband shopped at Black-owned businesses for an entire year and chronicled their experiences in their book, “Our Black Year: One Family’s Quest to Buy Black in America’s Racially Divided Economy,” from 2012. She spoke with NewsOne Now to give tips on how to keep money in our community for the holidays and beyond.

“Don’t focus on the things that we don’t have representation in,” Anderson said. “You can’t buy an XBOX Black-owned. You can’t buy a TV Black-owned, but there are things you can buy Blacked-owned, and there are some industries we do have great representation of Black businesses.” Gifts such as cosmetics (like Soul Purpose), clothing, and hair products (try Carol’s Daughter) are easy finds at retailers such as Macy’s, so you don’t have to go out of your way find them.

Take a look at the rest of her tips below:
