Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson celebrated the first day of Black History Month at The Kingsbridge Riverdale Van Cortlandt Development Corporation by honoring seven Black-owned businesses from the Kingsbridge/Riverdale section of the Bronx.
The list of businesses included Lloyd’s Carrot Cake, Ground Up Coffee Club, One Yoga for All, Clarity and Wellness Mental Health Counseling, PLLC, Jerry’s Barbershop; The Gummybear Foundation and Kinesadelic Physical Therapy.
“As we celebrate the first day of Black History Month, I am proud to recognize and acknowledge the faces and names behind these amazing small businesses that are making a difference here in the Bronx and beyond,” said Gibson. “It is a difficult time for business owners of color, but despite immense adversity, our Black-owned small businesses continue to persevere and provide quality service to our residents and families throughout the Borough. Their perseverance is a testament to our ancestors who paved the way for us to be where we are today and as the first African American elected Bronx Borough President, it is my honor to recognize these businesses for contributing to Black history right here in the Northwest Bronx.”
