Hennessy X Black History Month

The celebration of Black resilience is more than a month. It’s a movement–one that Hennessy has long been supporting. And our support of the Black entrepreneurs redefining our tomorrow continues.

Hennessy cognac supports black history month

Throughout history, Black entrepreneurship has created space for opportunity, progress and legacy within the Black community. And despite the obstacles that threaten to shutter Black businesses, they still find a way to rise above. Hennessy is inspired by, and will continue to support, the Black entrepreneurs who keep going.

The Hennessy Fellows Program, in partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, is a yearly investment in the education of future leaders in this country. And in 2020, we partnered with organizations like One Hundred Black Men to create the Unfinished Business Small Business Initiative, which provided support and resources for over 900 small BIPOC-owned businesses affected by COVID-19.

And this is just the start. Hennessy’s commitment to uplift and empower the Black community remains unfinished.
