The COVID-19 pandemic ravished businesses across America and have left many business owners seeking answers. Last week, President Donald Trump stated his Platinum Plan would assist small business owners, while also providing the opportunity for future Black business owners. If his current term is an indication of how those efforts will go, the future looks bleak.
One of the Black business owners impacted by the lack of organization and assistance from the Trump Administration is Celeste Beatty, who appeared in a recent Biden campaign spot. Beatty is the first Black woman to own a brewery in the United States and was met with the struggles that many across America have faced under inadequate leadership.
