Running a business that aims to serve a particular demographic can be a challenge. But sometimes it’s borne of necessity. As part of Black History month, we’re talking to black business owners to learn about the past when segregation created the need for minority businesses, to today when offering business diversity creates opportunities for community growth. Business diversity is the topic on the next Talk of Alaska.
HOST: Lori Townsend

Eleanor Andrews, civic entrepreneur, owner of of Andrews Group
Jasmin Smith, Director and Founder of The Business Boutique
Shawn Idom, owner of Hair Science Barber Shop and Barber School
