The POV #podcast is back this week with the founders of BLK OWNED HamOnt – sisters Ashleigh & Alexandria Montague (their third sister Abygail couldn’t make it for recording but was there in spirit!)

Listen in to hear the story of BLK OWNED; from its original launch after 2020’s BlackOut Tuesday when they saw a lot of performative activism online, to putting together a list of 150+ Hamilton businesses and some wildly popular social media channels, these sisters have grown their platform into an incredible resource and platform for Black business owners in the city and have no plans of slowing down soon.

In this episode, Ashleigh & Alex share all about how using purchasing power is an accessible form of activism, the results of a major survey they conducted of black-owned businesses in the city, and their future plans, including for a Black Youth Entrepreneurship Hub.

You definitely don’t want to miss this fantastic episode; thanks Ashleigh & Alexandria for being on the show!–14—BLK-OWNED-HAMONT–Ashleigh–Alexandria-Montague-e15sss7
