Beyonce and NAACP Partner to Help Out Black-Owned Businesses

Beyonce is up to it again. No, she isn't hitting us with a surprise album, not that we know of. But Beyonce is helping out again. Back in April, Beyoncé and the BeyGOOD foundation partnered with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s #startsmall initiative to donate $6 million to community-based organizations in need during the Covid-19. She even got with her mom, Tina, to encourage the community to seek free Covid-19 testing and gave away essential items during at a testing site. Well now Beyonce is partnering with the NAACP to launch the Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund, according to Forbes. This partnership will provide $10,000 grants to Black-owned companies in select cities "to help strengthen small businesses and to ensure economic empowerment for Black businesses." Eligible business owners must live in Houston, Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles or Minneapolis. Even though it doesn't cover many other cities, this is just a start.
