Black-owned businesses in Fort Wayne to be featured in directory

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - The Fort Wayne Black Chamber of Commerce is working on a new directory of Black-owned businesses.

It will feature entrepreneurs, organizations and companies.

The chamber is also producing a survey to see how many people buy from Black-owned businesses.

When the new directory comes out this fall, it will be available in print and online.

"It's important to have opportunities for organizations of diverse backgrounds to be successful and always confident that rising tides raise all boats, and particularly for Black businesses all throughout the city where they may not get as much attention or may not be as well known. This is a good opportunity for them to get their name out," said Clifford Clarke, of the Fort Wayne Black Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber is planning to release the directory in September.
