With This App You Can Find A Black-Owned Business
All you need is a phone.
“Around the Way” is a new application for iPhone and Android users that uses a phone’s GPS to detect your location, then locates the nearest black-owned businesses and gives you step-by-step directions to their door.
More than 20,000 businesses around the country are already listed; a large number of those are located in New York City, particularly Harlem and Brooklyn, but the app’s reach extends pretty far. There is even a listing for a black-owned bed-and-breakfast in Anchorage, Ak.
