As a Black female entrepreneur, creative, and small business owner, appreciating Black excellence is of the utmost importance to me. We stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us, and we must pave the way even further for those who are to come.

Black history is American history, and we are making history every day. Celebrating and supporting Black and BIPOC communities is an aspect I like to integrate into many different aspects of my day-to-day life. This Juneteenth I wanted to highlight a few ways you can show up for and support members of the Black Community.
