Black is Beautiful - Brands You'll Love
Updated: Jul 12, 2020
Are butterflies seen as any less beautiful, worthy or magical based on the colors of their wings? It's almost unimaginable to believe that we create division amongst ourselves as humans. It's confusing for those of us who see no division. Those who might have been unaware of the seriousness and impact systemic racism has in this country. We are doing our best to educate our small team here and to promote peace love and magic for all. We don't know what will do the most good, but we can show our support and uplift those with melanin-rich skin who have been embarrassingly (for humanity) mistaken as anything less than perfection.
