The pandemic of COVID-19 has disproportionately affected Black populations. The political extremism, the economic crisis, and the unceasing police brutality intertwined with the pandemic deepened racial inequalities in Brazil. Also affected by the sanitary, political, and economic crisis, Black professionals have created strategies to provide for themselves and develop their careers despite the lack of public emergence policies. Exploring the digital platforms, they affirm their Black identities and consolidate a Black consumer market while affirming their Black identities. This talk sheds light on three Black-owned businesses: “Maternidade em Movimento”, “MovendoDL”, and “Clubinho Preto”. These Black-owned companies play a relevant role as a "digital quilombing": a Black resistance for economic and ideological self-determination, and against anti-Black racism.
