Creating & Collaborating Across Generations
Founded as Brockton's first Black business advocacy organization & social impact venture in 2020, the mission of Black Owned Brockton is to curate a cohesive, collaborative space where business and social connections can be made & sustained. What started as an Instagram page has become a movement; an avenue for creating purposeful and long-lasting engagement between Brockton's Black business, community, and excellence
Our goal is to make it easier for you to discover local Black-owned businesses, in addition to documenting the significance of Brockton's culture. We seek to lift up and preserve bountiful stories that are often erased & overlooked we encourage you to learn more about — celebrate Black creators, and participate in an inclusive, unified community.
