Some Black business owners in Toronto say financial and public support has dried up months after the George Floyd movement put a spotlight on supporting Black people in workspaces. Hazel Antwi, owner of All Star Beauty Supply on Eglinton Avenue, said she saw a wave of support during the Black Lives Matter protests. “The support we received in that first month was amazing,” said Antwi. “We have we experienced customers coming from as far out from Brampton to Oshawa, coming all the way to our small store in Scarborough to support us.”
