Looking to support Black mom-owned businesses, during Black History Month and all year round?  From shoes to wine to beauty and more, we’ve curated a list of our favorite products founded by Black moms on a mission to leave the world just a bit better off.

Rebecca Allen Shoes

Rebecca Allen Shoes

Rebecca Allen launched her shoe line after years of searching for nude pumps to complement her skin tone. Today, her line has expanded to include boots, flats, sneakers and sandals in a range of luxurious nude shades. Allen’s success story (read more here) shows how turning a personal pain point into a business can create products that resonate deeply with an underserved market.

Partake Black Mom-Owned Business

Partake Foods

Denise Woodard founded Partake in 2016 when her daughter was diagnosed with multiple food allergies. Every product in her line – which includes cookies, breakfast mixes, grahams and more – is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan and is free of the top 9 allergens (wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, milk, eggs, soy, fish, sesame and shellfish). Partake’s mission extends beyond its own products – the company partners with organizations like No Kid Hungry to join the fight against food insecurity.

Fenty Black Mom-Owned Business

Fenty Beauty

We’d be remiss to leave Rihanna’s industry-changing Fenty Beauty off our list. The singer-turned-mogul created the brand with a focus on inclusivity and hard-to-match skin tones. Her bestselling Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, available in an unprecedented 58 shades, set a new standard that left established beauty giants playing catch-up. After just a few years, Fenty Beauty has skyrocketed to become one of the most popular and influential makeup brands globally, a testament to Rihanna’s visionary approach.

McBride Sisters Wine Black Mom-Owned Business

McBride Sisters Wine Company

Founded in 2005 by Robin and Andréa McBride, McBride Sisters Wine celebrates diversity and empowerment through its offerings.Their collection includes SHE CAN canned wine and its related SHE CAN Professional Development Fund, as well as Black Girl Magic, “inspired by the magic and resilience of Black women, to be enjoyed by all.” 

Saysh Black Mom-Owned Business


Decorated track and field athlete, Allyson Felix, faced a harsh reality when her longtime sponsor slashed her pay by 70% after she became pregnant. As she pursued her fifth Olympics, she was left grappling with the decision of which shoes to wear. As a result, she founded Saysh, a sneaker collection engineered for everyday performance. Her brand and advocacy against the inequalities plaguing sponsored women athletes sparked a long-overdue reckoning, with several major athletic sponsors announcing maternity protection policies and overhauled corporate practices.

JADE Swim Black Mom-Owned Business


Brittany Kozerski’s fashion expertise shines through in her minimalist swimwear brand, launched in 2016. As a former editor and stylist, she crafted designs versatile enough to transition from the beach to the streets (making packing easier for busy moms!). Kozerski prioritizes sustainability every step of the way – from using eco-friendly fabrics to implementing conscious production methods and biodegradable packaging.
