    Storyteller Amber Williams from PunkyFlair.com on Black Biz

    Storyteller Amber Williams from PunkyFlair.com on Black Biz

    In a post-Obama era where Blacks in America are still proclaiming "Black as the new Black," it's continuously surprising to see Black-owned businesses shy away from serving their own people. What European brands do so intently and without apology by showcasing imagery of only European models - Black businesses steer clear of such displays for fear of "limiting themselves."

    Storyteller Amber Williams is at the forefront of the move to dispel this myth of limitation by pushing Black businesses towards more sophisticated-unapologetic branding. Her platform Punky Flair is a brand storytelling agency that teaches Founders and CEOs how to improve their sales through stories built around their true customers. Amber has crafted brand language for Armani, CVS, The U.S Olympics and now she uses her talents to service black owned startups such as Camille Rose Naturals, Heat Free Hair, and Shea Radiance.

    Amber's aim is to shift the idea of merely "buying Black" to "serving Black.”

    Teen Entrepreneur Journi Prewitt Black Butterfly Beautiful

    Black Butterfly Beautiful, is a subscription box created by 17-year-old Journi Prewitt to empower, uplift, and encourage young people of color to embrace who they are. These boxes are sent monthly and curated based on subscriber age, gender and the month’s theme featuring books and other accessories from black-owned brands to help address underrepresentation, uncover black history, and provide inspiration.

    You can review past subscription boxes here https://blackbutterflybeautiful.com/pages/past-boxes-1

    Journi D'Khaos Prewitt is a Memphis-based teen entrepreneur working to empower black youth by helping them realize their potential. At the age of 16, she noticed the lack of interest many black kids and teens have in reading, the overwhelming under-representation of African Americans, and the self-esteem issues rooted in not realizing their value and rich history, so she set out to develop a solution to these problems with Black Butterfly Beautiful.

A breathe of fresh air

Mike Street does an incredible job highlighting guests who far too often go unnoticed and without thanks for their achievements. Here on SmartBrownVoices I was able to hear testimonies and success stories of people who look just like me. Keep doing what you are doing Mike, if you haven't heard it yet I appreciate you for all you are doing.
