Black-owned businesses partner with FCC to honor Juneteenth

When Donny Harper and his wife started Good Co. Apparel six years ago, they had three main goals: to connect with the community, send a positive message that solves a problem in the community and most importantly, promote good company.

“The company you surround yourself with is important to who you become or who you don’t become,” Harper said. “That message isn’t reiterated enough in our community so now every time you’re wearing something from Good Company you’re pushing that message but you’re also wearing yourself because you’re good company.”

And on Saturday, Harper had plenty of company.

 FC Cincinnati welcomed a full capacity crowd to TQL Stadium for the first time. In honor of Juneteenth, FCC partnered with two Black-owned businesses to sell team apparel at the East Plaza entrance.

“A major league soccer team partnered with a small, black-owned business. That’s paying homage and saying ‘We want to support you guys’ which is amazing to me,” Harper said. “For them to let us come out here and vend today is amazing.”

Harper's partnership with FC Cincinnati has been in the works for around 10 months.
