Moshood Creations is a community institution in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, where it’s been for over 20 years. A beloved establishment that has long been a symbol of community, local history, and black economic power, Moshood’s attracts locals and tourists alike through its word of mouth reputation and cultural significance. But as more and more people shop online and the gentrification of Brooklyn continues to push out longtime tenants with raising rent costs the future of Moshood’s is uncertain. With lots of support for black Brooklyn locals for Nigerian-American designer Moshood Ebi, the Brooklyn treasure is raising money to help the retailer survive the rising costs.

Donate to Moshood Creations’ GoFundMe if you can to help keep this landmark alive.
