Starbucks Who? 11 Black Owned Coffee Shops to Visit Locally

It’s been a little over a week since a Philadelphia Starbucks manager had 2 black men arrested because she thought the men looked suspicious. The men were apparently waiting on a friend and the 3 were planning to have a business meeting. Ever since this incident of racial profiling many have decided to forgo their daily Starbucks coffee run until something is done to reprimand the manager and Starbucks as a whole. Starbucks responded swiftly the following day of the controversy last week saying they’re closing 8,000 U.S. stores on May 29th so their employees can undergo a racial bias training class.

Until things have panned out at Starbucks we’ve found 10 local black owned coffee shops you can patronize for the time being or from here on end. You can sit in these coffee shops without the threat of looking ‘suspicious‘ because the owners, well look a lot like you! We’ve listed a few shops in Newark, JC, NYC, and Philly. We hope this list helps you on your quest for a Starbucks replacement.
