'Kwanzaa Plaza' promotes black-owned small businesses

The Freddie Gray Youth Empowerment Center on Eutaw Place is being transformed for the holidays into a plaza for black-owned local businesses.

Rev. Jamal Bryant, pastor of Empowerment Temple, said the gathering of entrepreneurs for "Kwanzaa Plaza" is meant to build a sense of community and encourage people to put their money into local business.

"The concept of supporting locally owned business has to be a movement," Bryant said in a news release. "Small businesses are an integral part of a thriving community; without them, communities die."

The plaza is scheduled to be open Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
