On top of that, the number of firms owned by black women grew by a stunning 164 percent. There are 2.4 million African American women-owned businesses in 2018, most owned by women ages 35 to 54. Black women are the only racial or ethnic group with more business ownership than their male peers, according to the Federal Reserve.
