In June 2020, Yelp answered the call from users to make it easier to support the Black community. The review platform launched its Black-owned business attribute to help consumers find, connect with and patronize Black-owned businesses. Since its launch, more than 45,000 businesses have self-identified as Black-owned on Yelp, making it easier than ever for consumers to dine and shop with these local businesses.

According to Yelp, review mentions for Black-owned businesses were up 165% in 2021, compared to 2019.

Last week, Yelp released its list of standout Black-owned food, beauty and home and decor businesses across the country in honor of Black History Month.
