The Pedestal Project is an online platform dedicated to recognizing and empowering Black women who are often overlooked, undersupported, and undervalued. A major part of uplifting Black women is economic empowerment. Our Buy Black section is a directory of Black-owned businesses that target Black women as their primary consumer. With our enormous buying power ($1.2 trillion dollars and rising!), The Pedestal Project aims to funnel that power back into our sisterhood and our community.

If you would like your Black-owned business to be listed in our directory, please submit your information below.
