The untimely, unjustified deaths of African Americans George Floyd and Breonna Taylor have sparked nationwide outrage and a never before seen rate of support for the #blacklivesmatter movement and black-owned businesses alike. Therefore, this post is designated to local black-owned businesses in Dalton and surrounding areas to support to your heart’s content!
There are not many black-owned businesses in Dalton yet, but if you’re in need of a haircut, head over to W Culyer St. to Shears of Dalton, one of the many black-owned barbershops in the city.
Just 30 minutes outside of Dalton, GA, Chattanooga, TN is one of the leading cities with a number of on the rise black-owned businesses to support.
If you’re feeling hungry, head over to Larry Torrence’s Uncle Larry’s Restaurant on Martin Luther King Blvd for an authentic, down-home feast as they are known for their fish fry and serving it traditionally on Styrofoam plates! If you’re more in the mood for classic soul food, Davis Wayne’s on Bradmore Lane will do the trick. Don’t forget to try their homemade cornbread.
Chattanooga Segway and Bike Tours is owned by Dianna Ward and gives tourists and locals a chance to tour the city of Chattanooga while having fun on wheels for a small fee. Her team even offers Segway lessons for those who’ve never ridden one!
For those interested in history and culture, check out the Bessie Smith Cultural Center also located on Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. This black-owned museum pays homage to the legendary blues singer and native of Chattanooga, Bessie Smith, and also gives visitors a glimpse into the lives of other black entertainers from the city such as Usher and Samuel L. Jackson!
These are just a few of local and/or surrounding black-owned businesses to support today, tomorrow, this month, or all year!
