The past week has erupted with protests for justice and equality for the Black community. George Floyd’s murder was a catalyst for people all around the world to start standing up against police brutality. Our Acme family is willing to do whatever it takes to support our brothers and sisters in this fight.
#BlackLivesMatter is trending, but here is a way we can continue to support the Black community after the protests and media buzz ends, support Black artists! As a woman-owned business, we found some amazing black female artists who need more attention.
