Here in Augusta we stand in solidarity with our black community. Our thriving city takes pride in our commitment to promoting a healthy and equitable environment for our residents and visitors. Augusta’s River Region has become a place that so many people love through our work in diminishing societal divides based on race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. Every voice of our community is worth commemorating and Augusta’s black community plays an integral role in creating the many authentic experiences of this soulful city. We are compiling a list of a few of our favorite black-owned businesses in Augusta’s River Region that value your continued support not only during times like these, but every day.
