Can You Be a Black Owned Business and Still Have White Models?

Your Corporate Black Girl

Dear Nikki,

Can you be a black owned business and still have white models?


Texas, USA


Black owned businesses have products that are not only targeted for Black audiences. 

It all depends on your target market and what they respond to. You should do research on your target market before opening your doors for business.  Find out what they look for, what they respond to and what their needs are.

This will help answer your question on marketing and which models to use.

Good luck!
