OBWS presents The Nationwide Black Business Crawl - Oakland

Join us as we shop and support our local Black-owned businesses with our 1st Nationwide Black Business Crawl! With the holidays upon us, we are maximizing our efforts to rebuild our community and support Black businesses by creating a weekend for consumers to shop Black around the country.

We've hand selected over 160 amazing Black-owned brick & mortar businesses in 11 cities. From Black-owned clothing shops to jewelry stores, we've worked with each business to create special offers exclusively for crawl participants.

If empowering your community and supporting Black businesses isn't enough, we're giving away a chance to win a $700 gift card to a national crawl participant who visits the most participating stores!
