Charlotte residents, please help us spread the word that rumors of a KKK rally tonight in Uptown Charlotte are false. City leaders want tonight’s Charlottesville vigil in Marshall Park to be a safe event for all who participate.

For Davita Galloway, The #CLTisDope hashtag is her way of celebrating Charlotte’s current art scene and speaking its potential into existence. Galloway, co-owner of creative studio Dupp & Swat, built her small business to give emerging artists a space to create and collaborate with others in the industry. “We know so many dope artists and we want the city to embrace that,” said Galloway. "Whether it’s a photo shoot, video shoot, party, book signing — [Dupp & Swat] is essentially a black box that can be transformed into whatever you want to do.” If you’re interested in starting or growing a small business in Charlotte, follow @cbrbiz for resources on how to join our thriving business community. #Charlotte #CLT #704 #QueenCity #BlackBusinessMonth
In celebration of Black Business Month, we’re featuring some of the small business owners who who help shape Charlotte’s vibrant business community. Cliff Joyner, owner or Polo’s Homemade Italian Water Ice, is a staple at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center plaza. Joyner started the business as a part-time project as he worked full-time as an account executive for a large food company. “I’ve been doing this for a little more than 10 years, but I moved to Charlotte three years ago to focus more on [my business]. Charlotte is the perfect fit. For me, it’s big enough and small enough at the same time.” Joyner credits the success of his small business to being able to build relationships with the community, but admits the territory comes with challenges. “Don’t stop,” Joyner tells budding entrepreneurs. “Keep going. If it’s your dream or your passion and you feel like it’s the right step, at least try it. If you don’t, you’ll have regrets in the end.” If you’re looking to follow your dreams of starting or growing a business in Charlotte, visit @cbrbiz for access to the tools and resources you’ll need to start and run a successful venture. #Charlotte #CLT #704 #QueenCity #BlackBusinessMonth
