Black Fraternity Members and HBCU Grads Create Show That Reviews Products from Black-Owned Businesses

A group of Black fraternity members and HBCU graduates have teamed up to create a show that reviews products from Black-owned businesses.

The show that they have created is called The Urban Retrospect and according to the creators, its goal is to “give honest, down-to-earth feedback about Black-Owned products for use in our everyday lives.”

So far, the show has reviewed products including everything from cigars, coffee, clothing, bourbon, BBQ, whiskey, cookies to even socks that have been created by Black-owned companies.
