Support People of Color on Cape Cod

Choose from our list of businesses owned by people of color on Cape Cod and help to reduce the racial wealth gap created by systemic racism

Special thanks to our sponsor The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod!

When we say, “The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod is a community bank,” we’re really telling you our story in a nutshell.

Community banks are often defined as being “small,” but we prefer the term “local.” Since we began in 1921, giving back to the communities where we work, play and live, has been at the heart of everything we do. That’s a privilege and a responsibility that we take seriously.

Our Featured Business of the Week is...
SBW Hospitality Management & Events AND My Daddy Wears an Apron

"Hospitality is an art form,” says Chef Ralph Jason Younger. “And food is a catalyst to understanding so many different cultures. Fun, unique, and soul filling foods allow a peaceful feeling for people to gather and break bread. It’s in those bites, and moments, that people become willing to hear another person’s point of view. Every table I set, every meal I provide, is to be enjoyed without judgment or offending the people who have gathered."

With a background in the culinary arts and business, Ralph initially launched Simply Black & White Catering. When his then partner decided to go back to school, Ralph became a stay-at-home Dad for their two children and launched My Daddy Wears and Apron, to focus on helping families and kids. Leaning into his exceptional talents as a host and event designer, Chef Ralph's original company has now grown into SBW Hospitality Management & Events, offering elevated dining and hospitality experiences as well as (during Covid) beautifully curated boxes of hand-crafted appetizers. Meanwhile, thanks to a sponsorship from the Kennedy Donavan Center, his Daddy empire has branched out into online cooking classes for people of all abilities, and given him a platform to share his hard-earned wisdom about cooking with young ones, single dad challenges, and navigating life stages like co-parenting. The free sessions often have him “chef it up” with his own kids.

"I believe in the idea that love and acceptance sees your color, your gender, your sexual orientation, your pain, and your struggle. When you love and accept people, you will ultimately witness their passion, their joy, their dedication, and their ability to grow. I will only speak positive affirmations and allow my children to grow in a space that makes sense only to them. I will build them up so they don't have to tear other people down. And I will expose them to every type of person or ideology so that they can choose their own paths.”

The free online culinary workshops happen biweekly via Zoom (registration info below) — the recipe and instructions arrive before the session so you can be ready to cook along. The sessions dispel two persistent misperceptions: That only women belong in the kitchen, and that Black fathers are inactive in the lives of their kids. Every two weeks, Ralph dons an apron and actively teaches his own children culinary skills and the life lesson of kindness towards people with all abilities.

Chef Ralph’s family & kids food repertoire is mind-boggling, spanning culinary cultures and all levels of entertaining, from modern takes on fancy classics (chicken cordon bleu with spinach rollups, apple sausage and veggie quiche, spanakopita, strawberry biscuit shortcakes) to backyard camping (southwestern egg rolls, sweet corn and chorizo fritters with garlic aoli, chicken pot pie crescent cups, classic shepherd’s pie, smores quesadilla) to movie night with the family (homemade baked mozzarella sticks, Latin American chicken nachos a.k.a. tostones con pollo, pizza rolls, pigs in a blanket, fruit kabobs, fruit pizza, and even a taco-stuffed pepper mummies for Halloween).

And not surprisingly, Chef Ralph extends his generosity of talent and spirit to the greater community as well. He often caters for exceptional non-profits like the YMCA and Calmer Choice. "There is no room for hate for me! We can agree to disagree and keep it moving. I will accept you for who you are now and who you still may become.”

My paintings are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe. Masks, portraits, birds, and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that visually pop.

Airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads, and jewelry are attached to wood panels and coated with high gloss poly-resin. The paintings appear as if they are stained glass, and lit from behind. The intentional stunning appearances leave viewers amazed and intrigued.

His paintings have been shown widely, including solo and group exhibitions at Freight & Volume Gallery in New York, Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Miami, and Schoolhouse gallery in Provincetown.

Joe Diggs

My work has always assisted me with life on Micah’s Pond, a beautiful property once owned by my grandfather, then my father, now me.I concentrate on painting and finding the exact color the exact shape to say what I’m trying to say. I allow myself to act as a medium and concentrate on the images that come through on the canvas. Sometimes I have plans for the painting and strategically make it happen. Other times I approach the canvas on a pure emotional level by letting the paint flow free almost like a child would. To me painting is magic; images appear out of nothing, blobs of color transform themselves to a new meaning. Creating art gives me the opportunity to share my visual experiences. I identify with the power of the image and re-represent it to my audience. I want my work to invoke thoughts and emotions that will take the viewer on a visual journey.

I paint from observation, but allow my art the freedom to be spontaneous, which spawns new work. Just as importantly, by allowing impromptu action, I omit the desire to control everything in the process. This grants me a voyeuristic space to operate. Being intensely in control without force, I react to chance intuitively, and reflect my findings to my audience. Being a voyeur and a medium wrapped into one.

Wiz's Barbershop

Quote from a review: "As an African American, this is the only place I go for a great hair cut. I have been going there for over 15 years, and I am always there, after I try a new place! They can cut all types of hair, but cutting curly hair takes skill, not a buzzer, I tried every other barber shop in town, and I always had to run to the Wiz, to fix it."

Who We Are & What We're About...

Amplify POC Cape Cod is a racial justice initiative to help amplify the businesses owned by people of color (POC) on Cape Cod. Amplify was founded by Tara Vargas-Wallace, after the murder of George Floyd. As a Puerto Rican woman who is married to a Black man and mother to three promising Black children and as a social justice activist in the community, this issue was personal to her. In the spring and summer of 2020, community members began reaching out to Tara to ask how they could support the Black community. A list of Black owned businesses did not exist for the Cape region, and therefore, Tara created one as part of Amplify's first endeavour.

After some discussion with her local NAACP it was decided that due to the dynamics on the Cape it would be best to include all businesses owned by people of color as there simply weren't enough Black-Owned businesses in the region. The goal then became to amplify business owned by all marginalized groups of people thus adopting the term POC for People of Color.

Amplify will grow in the future to include training and educational opportunities to enhance economic development among people of color on the Cape. Because of systemic racism, we know that the COVID pandemic has disproportionately impacted POC and now is an especially important time to support small local businesses, especially those owned and operated by POC. We're hoping that Amplify - as a community driven initiative - helps to create a more equitable Cape Cod by fostering growth within and for our community.

Our Mission


Amplify POC Cape Cod promotes racial equity to POC-owned businesses by providing resources and education that enhance visibility, increase patronage, and highlight their successes and contributions in order to provide sustainability and reduce the wealth gap caused by systemic racism.

Our Vision


The vision of Amplify POC Cape Cod is to promote economic power and sustainability by eliminating the wealth gap for POC on Cape Cod with an accessible online resource of POC-owned businesses, and to provide opportunities for learning and advancement for POC in partnership with other community agencies through classes in financial literacy, banking relations, asset building, home ownership, entrepreneurship and wealth building. As part of Amplify's commitment to end systemic racism, Amplify advocates for the advancement of racial justice by educating community members and promoting local initiatives to increase awareness and promote positive progressive change.

Our Ask


Firstly, we would like to acknowledge that we are aware that COVID has taken an enormous toll on the economy and people’s finances. Those who would like to support POC owned businesses and this initiative may not be able to give as much and we are appreciative of all donations and any amount is welcome.

We are looking for sponsors to support this grassroots initiative. We are seeking monetary donations and partnerships from local organizations, businesses, and community members for the following: maintain our website and social media platforms to AMPLIFY POC owned businesses on Cape Cod, to create programs and events to support people of color, POC owned businesses and entrepreneurs on Cape Cod, and lastly to continue sharing resources and opportunities with our community.

Our Team


I created a team of eight volunteers each with their own skill sets and all of whom are passionate about racial and social justice. We are all women, five of whom, are women of color.
