“Dear PoPville,

Last weekend when looting was at its peak, Black & White Look Optical, a local, Black Woman-owned Optometrist on U St, was broken into and robbed of 90% of its inventory. I’m sure the owner did have business insurance but perhaps not to this extent.”

Here is the their GoFundMe:

“Our business was broken into we have been operating for 4 years! This is fundraiser is to support a local black business that was deeply affected by the riots/protest against police brutality. We are an Optical store located in Washington DC”

On Facebook they write: “To everyone that has reached out to me and donated to my GoFundMe. I would like to thank you all, these are trying times with the pandemic I know it’s tough for many of us out here. I appreciate your generosity, I’m overwhelmed with joy from your support. The business will be back & business and we will be stronger”

1514 U Street, NW
