In February we formally celebrate black history by remembering those who are well known and those who aren’t a widely celebrated. We embrace the impact the Black Americans have made to this country and the world.
A huge part of history is also showcasing those who are making history now, by showing up and excelling in the present. Each week this month I will showcase Black Americans creating space in the self-care, productivity, and wellness niches! This week I will be sharing with you some awesome Black owned subscription boxes to help steward your mental, emotional, and physical wellness!
