Saturday’s Virtual Merchant Showcase was awesome! We had so much fun gathering virtually to learn about the Black leaders and businesses that have shaped our Downtown and get VIP tours of some of our Black-owned/led businesses offering goods, services, and community right now. Huge thanks to everyone who purchased tickets and tuned in. Big thanks also to our event sponsor, Travis Credit Union, our co-host Karen Buchanan of Urban History Hikes, our camera operators Robert Rogers and Shots from Richmond, and our participating businesses: Gratitude Afrocentric Gift StoreRich City StudiosCoBiz RichmondRich City Rides Bike Skate Coop Shop.

And the showcase was profiled on NBC Bay Area over the weekend. Check it out!
