Black Owned Businesses on South Street

Mar 19, 2021 | Community, Featured

One of the many things that makes the South Street Headhouse District so unique is our diversity. 

As one of the most diverse business districts in Center City, we are committed to supporting and advocating for Black-owned businesses 365 days of the year. Our community is a stunning amalgamation of diverse histories and cultures. We are proud that almost 30 Black business owners have chosen to place their businesses in our district! We encourage you to support them today and every day!
