If you have a business and also have a verified Google My Business account, you can now add a Black-owned business attribute to the listings. These, and any other attribute will be highlighted as icons on mobile business profiles.

The announcement was made on July 30. Google also announced the inaugural class of the Google for Startups Accelerator for Black Founders on the same day as well.

The company is also partnering with the US Black Chambers, Inc., which is trying to spread awareness for the Black-owned attribute.
