Phillips Guide is the most comprehensive black businesses directory in the San Francisco Bay Area. Phillips Guide was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book (The Green Book). The Green Book listed establishments across the United States that welcomed African Americans during segregation. Although The Green Book is no longer necessary, black owned businesses are still an important part of our economy. Therefore, the mission of Phillips Guide is to encourage entrepreneurship in the black community. Phillips Guide was founded by husband and wife team Mister and Angela Phillips in 2014.
