Black Twin Cities brings together the best of Minneapolis and St. Paul, all in a comprehensive, fun and easy-to-use format. “Our users are pressed for time, but also want to know about all of the events and business available to them,” says La Juana Whitmore, Owner. “They need the information they receive to be timely, accurate and up-to-date. Our online listings provide this in a way printed publications cannot.”

How did Black Twin Cities start? Says Whitmore, “One day, in a moment of weakness, I was craving soul food, and quickly learned that all of the restaurants I’d known of were closed. After three days of searching, I finally found a wonderful place, which I loved so much that I ate there twice in one week. Upon finishing my second meal, I asked myself ‘Why was this place so hard to find?’ That night, I created a website and Facebook page called Black Twin Cities. A few short weeks later, it had over 1200 fans, and many favorable comments. I knew I was not alone.”

About Black Twin Cities was created in 2010 by La Juana Whitmore, a software and business process consultant for a Minnesota based, Fortune 100 Company.
