Peeking Into The Future of Black Wellness

Peeking Into The Future of Black Wellness

As we come to the end of Black History Month 2021, we wanted to peek into the Black Future of Wellness.   Every year Black History falls on the shortest month of the year and there is never enough time to unpack all the contributions that Black people have made to America.  Since Black history is American History, we will continue to include Black Wellness in our mission year round.  Here are some people we think you should keep an eye on in 2021!! Since Black Wellness is complicated and often intersectional, there are folks from wellness, beauty, hair, mental health, fitness and more on this list for all to enjoy!
