That Brown Bag, is Shantelle Lynette Patton's printed business directory connecting local consumers with businesses whose owners are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. It is a comprehensive directory that is compiled using submissions from business owners as well as research done by the directory team. Each submission includes the business name, owner/contact person's name, address and/or phone number, along with social network handles, email addresses, and/or business website links. The goal of the directory is to give local consumers a resource guide to find minority-owned businesses in the City of Buffalo and surrounding areas, encouraging an exchange that will strengthen the black and brown dollar from which the business originated.
