“These are folks who are out there who are working hard, who are making money, who are in local supermarkets, who are in the airport who have deals but sometimes because of the background that we come from they just don’t always have that opportunity to consistently scale up,”

The following businesses will be part of Diversity Shop:

  • February 13- Najah Corp. & Skincare Essentials By Jill
  • February 25- Elle James Decor & Black Monarchy
  • March 3- Melanin Skyn Co. & Skinny Wick Candle Co.
