Apparel/Fashion

Black Dad Swag

★★★★★

I’ve ordered both apparel and art work from this company and both times they have exceeded my expectations. The shirt was a great material that washed well, I wore it to the Grand Canyon and got several compliments. I also just finished my man cave that has an alpha theme to it and needed some updated artwork. I ordered one of their canvas and was impressed with the quality.

Food

Old Arthur’s

★★★★★

The sauces (mild & spicy) are better than any I’ve ever used or tasted. They offer 8 different rubs, too. As incredible as their products are, their backstory is equal to it. Fifth generation family business started by a former slave who manned the plantation pits until he was emancipated in 1863. Now his great-great-grandson is carrying on the tradition and expanding their reach.

Martial Arts

★★★★★

This Black Owned and operated martial arts dojo is by far the best I have ever seen. I have taken several forms of martial arts from various teachers, but this is the most knowledgable and professional. This Dojo’s understanding of the art and how they tie black history into it is like none other. What makes this dojo special is the owner and lead sensei he has a way to customizing everyone of his students programs so that they get the most out of the art. I have been a student here for several years and proudly recommended it to everyone.

Appliance and HVAC Repair

Appliance 95 – Craig Washington Owner

★★★★★

Craig and his team are independent HVAC and appliance repairmen who are knowledgeable and honest. They did a great job servicing my older HVAC system at a reasonable price. I tried other “name brand” HVAC repair services and received very different, expensive and unnecessary quotes.
