Black History Month 2020

This Black History Month we look back at stories that inspire a brighter future.

celebrating Black History Month with #blackhairstory  

“The function, the very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being.

Somebody says you have no language and you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up.

None of this is necessary. There will always be one more thing.”
Toni Morrison

This BHM is for us, a celebration. It’s been a tough year but our community need hope.

As a company run by Black women, we’ve felt heavy recently. We’ve felt the weight of Breonna Taylor’s murder. The weight of Black people disproportionately dying from Covid-19. The weight of Black women being 5x as likely to die in childbirth.

We’ve felt that same heaviness throughout our community. This Black History Month our focus is on lightening the weight. On telling stories of Black women who have overcome immense hurdles to make history.

Against the odds, incredible Black women throughout history have made the world a better place. By sharing their stories, we hope to inspire change.

This Black History Month we look back at stories that inspire a brighter future.
