Washington Wizards To Support Black-Owned Businesses In The DMV

The Washington Wizards continue their commitment to showcasing black-owned businesses in the DMV area for the fourth year.

The businesses are all located within a 75-mile radius of Capital One Arena, where the Washington Wizards host their home games. Each has a special story, the team’s site states.

“As our nation struggles with the impact of this global pandemic and racial injustice, it’s especially important to recognize the immense legacy that Black-owned businesses in our own backyard have had and will continue to have,” the team says.

The outstanding companies selected for this year’s honor are: Bithenergy, an award-winning energy engineering and technical services consulting firm; T|W Tote, a luxury brand with products ranging from insulated totes to multiple compartment toiletry bags, weekender bags and backpacks, and Milk & Honey Café, a New-Orleans inspired Southern brunch restaurant with award-winning dishes.

Also honored will be Miche Beauty, a haircare brand specializing in clean, simple, and effective products for all textures of naturally curly hair; GMG Management Consulting Inc, a minority woman-owned management consulting and professional support company that provides professional accounting, auditing, training, consulting, and financial management solutions; and Morel’s Exquisite Designs, a veteran-owned business that specializes in decorations, balloon artistry, and party rental furnishings.

The words “DMV” are also featured on the special edition home jerseys as a homage to the Wizards, the first local team to become trailblazers by incorporating the popular abbreviation on sports merchandise.
