CHICAGO—The Black Mall, a nationally directory showcase Black owned businesses will host its 2nd Annual TBM Awards Show April 21 at Mosque Maryam located in Chicago at 7351 S. Stony Island. The show will held from 7pm to 10pm.

The public can now vote for their favorite Black business in the listed categories at www.theblackmall.com/tbmawards/.

According to statistics, many Black consumers want to spend money with Black-owned businesses but just don’t know where to find ones selling the products and services they seek.

The goal of the TBM Awards is to acknowledge and celebrate thriving Black business, to increase awareness of Black business throughout the City of Chicago and nationwide, and to increase community pride.
