PDX Black-Owned Businesses: A Directory of What You’re Hearing On-Air

You may have heard that, in celebration of Juneteenth, XRAY.fm & The Numberz.fm put out an open call offering free radio spots for Black-owned businesses and organizations in the Portland metro area. We had an incredible response, so we decided to make a directory of those businesses that we’re currently celebrating on our airwaves so our listeners could find them all in one place, find new favorite businesses, and get more info than a short audio clip. This is in no way comprehensive of all Black-Owned businesses in Portland, but simply the ones we’re currently airing spots for.

Several businesses fall into more than one category, you’ll find them listed in every category that applies to them. If there’s a business you think should be included or you own a business and would like to also be included in this project, please let us know here.
