CINCINNATI — Halle-Bration is going virtual this year due to the pandemic, and this event will focus on supporting Black-owned businesses.
In the past, Halle-Bration was held at New Vision Methodist Church and had workshops on things like personal financing and fitness. However, the pandemic has caused the event to go virtual.
This year's event will also be supporting 25 Black-owned businesses, many of which have been struggling this year.
"When we support our Black businesses we know that we are supporting smaller businesses that are going to employ people primarily in the Black community," Kathy Lewis Norman, Halle-Bration's event chair and co-founder, said. "That helps to strengthen and build our communities."
