Meet Devin Trent!

“I’ve always been into photography. I even had a video camera that I would carry around for my high school video yearbook. Photography Is fun for me. It’s not work at all.

There’s power in pictures. You can tell a compelling story with wedding photos. A story that can make you laugh, cry and reminisce. A story that can really touch you emotionally. I find those stories to be fascinating.

Images can be used to send subliminal messages as well, be it positive or negative. I choose to use that subliminal power for good. I have an ongoing project I’m working on called “Team Natural”. The purpose of this project is to encourage and inspire my sistas to embrace their natural God-given crowns of glory. I saw a story on the news, covered by Rochelle Ritchie a while ago. A girl was teased about her hair in school. Her mother tried to encourage her to ignore her peers and tell her that she was beautiful just the way she is. The daughter was reluctant to believe because her mother was still getting perms herself. Then so commenced the mothers natural hair journey. Now mommy and daughter are wearing their real hair, and the daughter is more confident about it.”

“I believe that the more sistas see other sistas being beautiful in their natural hair, the more they will be inspired to do the same.

Many women wear fake hair, fake butts, fake breasts, fake eyelashes, fake fingernails, fake toenails, fake handbags, fake clothes….. but yet they want a “Real Man”…..smh….. Black women and their real hair, I love them…. I celebrate them!”

“Peace to the middle east, and a bottle of hair grease ;-)”

A nude bra and skin tone hosiery are the basics of every woman’s wardrobe, at least in theory. For many women of color, finding suitable skin-tone hosiery and lingerie has not been an option. Frustrated by the lack of skin-tone choices to go with her ever-expanding wardrobe, Nubian Skin founder, Ade Hassan, decided it was time for ‘a different kind of nude’.

Inspired by trailblazing women, Eunice W. Johnson and super model Iman, who created Fashion Fair and Iman cosmetics, Ade took the leap and created Nubian Skin. It’s been an uphill battle, but every revolution starts somewhere.

Nubian Skin launched with a carefully edited collection of lingerie and hosiery to provide the essential underwear needs of women of colour. Headquartered in London, Nubian Skin delivers worldwide and looks forward to growing the company’s offering and expanding its reach.

Meet Andrea and Robin McBride

The story is pretty amazing. Not only do they own the first African-American owned wine company, but it was none other than fate that put these sisters together after years of not knowing they have a sibling. Andrea was 16 and Robin was 25 when they met in 1999. One in New Zealand and the other in California, It was their father’s dying wish for them to meet and form a bond. They both grew up around vineyards, which inspired them to come together and start their own wine company. What better way to form a bond with your long-lost sister than to start a business together?

They named the company “Truvée,” a twist for the French word, trouver, which means “to find.”
