Homicide of Destiny Harris shows dangers faced by business owners

Destiny Harris, a promising young business owner, was killed in Baltimore at the age of 21. Her family members say she “feared for her life” prior to her murder, as she had previously been threatened, robbed and physically attacked in her place of business.

Destiny, a shining star in her community, owned Madam D salon and sold extension hair — known as “bundles” as they are sewn into wefts for extensions, wigs and weaving. She reported being robbed of $3,000 worth of bundles, according to TheGrio.com.

As a community, we say we want to see more black-owned businesses, but what are we doing to protect business owners like Destiny from being preyed upon by the very people they aspire to serve?
