According to NBC4i, Columbus Airbnb owner and photographer Shellee Fisher wanted to do more to promote Black-owned businesses in Columbus’ tourism scene.
She decided to focus on lodging, knowing there were more Black short-term rental owners like her who wanted to promote their properties to guests interested in supporting Black business owners.
Fisher recently launched The Blacklist, a repository of Black-owned short-term rental properties in Columbus.
Its creation was timed to match up with the upcoming in-person return of the Ohio Black Expo in Columbus, during which thousands of people are expected to travel to Columbus to celebrate Black culture.
