Essence Magazine is Now Completely Managed By a Black Owner

Essence Communications revealed on Thursday that Essence Ventures had purchased it for an undisclosed sum from Time Inc. Richelieu Dennis founded Essence Venture in 2017, who also founded Sundial Brands, a personal care company that owns Shea Moisture, Nubian Heritage and Mrs. C.J. Walker cosmetics brands.

According to the New York Times, Time Inc. originally bought a 49 percent stake in the publication from founders Clarence Smith and Ed Lewis in 2000 before buying the remaining 51 percent in 2005.

Michelle Ebanks, C.E.O of Essence, will continue to lead the organization and will also join the board. In fact, the organization will obtain an equity stake from Ebanks and Essence’s all-black female executive team.

“This acquisition of Essence marks the beginning of an exciting evolution of our iconic brand as it expands to serve the needs and desires of multigenerational Black women around the world in an even higher and more comprehensive way through print, electronic, e-commerce and experiential channels,” Ebanks said in a statement. “However, it reflects a vital acknowledgment, centering and advancement of Black women who run the company from a position of sole leadership to a position of co-ownership.”

Essence Ventures added that the 47-year-old publication will focus on expanding its online operations to represent and empower black women.

Dennis continued, “Our emphasis here will be on ensuring Essence achieves its full potential through expanded resources, innovation, services and touchpoints that super-serve Black women’s interests locally and globally.”

Vanessa Braxton Black-Owned Vodka Brand “Black Momma” to Open Cafe and Bar

Black Momma Vodka’s owner, Vanessa Braxton, is expanding her burgeoning empire. Braxton plans to open next year’s 4,600-square-foot cafe and bar in Wheatley Heights, New York, according to Black Business.

In preparation of the debut of Black Momma Tea & Cafe, she has recently taken over three storefronts in a New York shopping plaza. 160 different tea varieties, three flavored agaves and vegan and organic food products such as muffins and wraps will be served at the proposed restaurant.

Braxton, 50, from Dix Hills, started making her own Black Momma vodkas in 2013 and opened a factory in Wyandanch in 2016. She also started making teas, followed by flavored agaves, and now has 33,000 customers online and wholesale, selling $2.9 million. She plans to open distribution centers in several states, while the Wheatley Heights building will serve as the company headquarters and training facility for the nearly 300 franchisees who are interested in working with her.

Braxton said she looked at many properties, according to Newsday, but chose Wheatley Heights because among its 5,100 residents it was about 60 percent black and Latino. “I have plenty of places to go,” says Braxton, a retired structural engineer from the MTA. “But I wanted to take the opportunity to see what I’m doing for the community for people who look like me to step up and do the same thing.”

“I’m using a lot of small, minority, women, and veteran-owned vendors who’ve never had the opportunity with bigger places,” she said. “It’s economic inclusion for everyone,” said Chris Black, president of the Concerned Taxpayers of Wheatley Heights / Dix Hills Civic Association. “What she brings is a different flavor to the city center and it’s upscale.” “We want this in the community.”

Braxton is Black Momma Vodka and Black Momma Brand’s CEO and president. She is also the country’s first African American female distiller, master blender, and manufacturer of a nationally distributed vodka, and the founder of the country’s first black-owned tea and beverage plant.

Art Haus Balloon Company Gives Black Owned Businesses in Indianapolis the Exposure They Need To Grow

Art Haus Balloon Company Gives Black Owned Businesses in Indianapolis the Exposure They Need To Grow

As shoppers enter the holiday swing, it’s important to remember that there are plenty of Indianapolis Black-owned businesses offering a wide range of goods and services.

The Black Owned Holiday Bazaar, hosted by Art Haus Balloon Company, will give the exposure they need to those business owners as they try to compete with larger businesses that usually gain more visibility.

The event is free and it kicks off between 2 – 6 p.m. on Nov. 23 at Edna Martin Christian Center, 2605 E. 25th St. Register at Eventbrite.

For her case, Moriah Salisbury had lower expectations, particularly since it was the first. She said more than 200 people have registered to attend, however, and twenty companies are expected to attend. They include boutiques, manufacturers of candles and even a shop specializing in organic oral health products.

“I just wanted the community to do something nice,” said Salisbury. “I thought I’d be lucky to be honest if I had 50 people coming. That’s what I’ve expected all this time. But it’s blowing up into something big that’s amazing now.

Images with Santa and a craft station will also be available at the party. Part of the event’s long-term goal, she said, is also to help make Black-owned businesses feel a sense of community.
Salisbury began her company two years ago and before that, she was a seller, so she knows the fight to get products and services before customers.

It seems like similar events usually include white-owned businesses, she said, and they attract mostly white crowds. Therefore, if a Black owner is part of that event; not many Black people are reaching his or her company.
“When you’re the one Black person, you just don’t feel very inclusive,” Salisbury said.

That exposure can be particularly helpful at this time of year as people start shopping for Christmas. There’s Amazon, the big-box stores, and so on, but an extra few minutes of research could reveal that there’s a small, black-owned business selling some of the same items.

“It’s not necessary to order this online,” said Salisbury. “You can get this from somebody in Indianapolis.”

Dymetra Pernell Operates Atlanta’s Black-Owned Vegan Ice Cream and Pastry Restaurant

The founder of First Batch Artisan Foods, the only restaurant based in Atlanta that sells exclusively vegan ice cream and pastries, is Dymetra Pernell, also known as the “Plant-based Princess.” This is also Atlanta’s only Black-owned business of its kind.

First Batch Artisan Foods has a diverse menu of vegan desserts that includes, in addition to ice cream, peach cobbler and brownies.

Pernell said she missed her favorite dessert ice cream when she became vegan. “I was sick of sneaking off to Bruster’s and then getting sick, and I said,’ I really need to do something about my cravings.'”

Pernell developed her first batch of ice cream in her home to satisfy her sweet tooth. “I went to the kitchen and said,’ what would I be if I were an ice cream?

Pernell said the first ice cream batch has become a hit among friends and restaurant owners, and since that time, the name “First Batch” has stuck. She sold over 3,000 pints of ice cream at the famous Atlanta gym E.F.F.E.C.T Fitness during her launch in the summer of 2018.

When she first started, Pernell said; she wanted to target vegans but was surprised to learn that most of her client base is not vegan. After people ate the ice cream and found that they could eat it without the stomachache and feel no guilt, they loved it. “At present, First Batch Artisan Foods is located in Little Five Points within Moods Music. Pernell said she was going to start a restaurant in East Point.

The event is funded by the founder and CEO of MedSafe, Qadirah Rasheed, who loves her culture and considers the family of her clients.

MedSafe Transport provides transportation across the state of New York for Medicaid recipients. Many patients of Rasheed are battling mental health problems, abussing drugs, and living in group homes. Many are also faced with poverty, lacking vital resources and support. Society and even their own families are often neglecting this group.

Rasheed is proud to serve those in need as the first Black woman to own a non-emergency medical transportation company in New York. She buys breakfast for her customers every Wednesday along with the annual charity dinner.

“The biggest feeling I have is to give back to those in need. I also enjoy inspiring others by sharing my story and making history as the first African-American woman to own a New York state-owned non-emergency medical transport company, “she said. “Thanksgiving is a time to thank you. I’m happy to host this event to say’ thank you’ to my loyal clientele who added to my industry success.

Guests at the charity feast will also play games, win prizes, and have the opportunity to win two gift baskets through a raffle. Rasheed accepts both monetary donations and food, gift bags and vacation decoration. The donation season of MedSafe Transport will continue with an upcoming Christmas gift.

Top Rappper “Chamillionaire”, is on a Quest to Empower Black Entrepreneurs

A venture capital competition has been launched by the music artist whose real name is Hakeem Seriki, to fund businesses founded by Black innovators and female entrepreneurs.

The contest is running via his Convoz app; a website designed to “link the world through interactive conversations,” investing $100,000 in the company of the winner of the pitch competition. Seriki has engaged Daymond John and rapper and entrepreneurE-40 businessman and investor to pick a company to invest in.

“It just sounds a little insane to me when people say they can’t find African-American startups to invest in,” he told the news outlet. “At one point, I got 30 candidates a month, but when I said that I only wanted to invest in women or minorities, I started getting just two candidates a month.”

Seriki, who has invested in over 40 start-ups, added that he is aware of the racial and gender inequalities that exist when it comes to accessing venture capital and that he wants to use this competition and other initiatives to build pathways for undoing. Launched on November 11, the pitch contest will run through December 6.

Those who are interested in entering the competition can use his app to participate.

This is not Chamillionaire’s first venture in black entrepreneurship. In June, together withE-40, he arranged a start-up competition where the two invested $25,000 in a minority or female-owned business. In black businessmen, many hip-hop artists are stepping up and investing. Jay-Z invested $1 million earlier this year in a Black-owned vegan cookie company.

McKissack, Magnetar’s Alec Litowitz and Rogers Purchase a Black Owned Cosmetic Company Out of Bankruptcy

The Former executives of Johnson, Cheryl Mayberry McKissack, Magnetar’s Alec Litowitz and Rogers purchased a black owned cosmetics company out of bankruptcy. The beauty line of Fashion Fair is now managed by a collection of familiar faces.

The former CEO and COO of Johnson Publishing, Desiree Rogers and Cheryl Mayberry McKissack, together with the hedge fund Magnetar from Alec Litowitz, recently acquired Fashion Fair out of bankruptcy for $1.85 million.

Founded in 1973 to primarily serve African American women, the popular cosmetics brand designed for women of color was owned by the publishing company. At one point, it was the world’s largest black-owned cosmetics company and distributed in department stores and online body, hair and perfume items.

“Fashion Fair is just too valuable to lose to our family,” said Rogers in an emailed statement. “We expect to modernize the brand and products, but will remain true to the origins of the business, which was to create prestigious color women-focused products.”

Earlier this year, after exhausting attempts to restructure, refinance or sell its assets, the 77-year-old Johnson Publishing, founded by John Johnson, filed for Chapter 7 liquidation in the Federal Bankruptcy Court.

In recent years, the publishing company has struggled to keep items from Fashion Fair in department stores. His daughter, Linda Johnson Rice, took full control of the company after the founder’s death in 2005 and appointed a number of supervisors, including former social secretary of the White House Rogers as CEO in 2010. While Rogers tried to revive the struggling brand of Fashion Fair with new colors and marketing, it mounted inventory snafus and left in 2017.

Rogers, Litowitz and Cheryl Mayberry McKissack also own Black Opal, another colored women’s beauty brand that was introduced in 1994.

Zulu Ali’s Law Firm, a Black-Owned Law Firm, Has Been Listed By Attorney And Practice Magazine as One of The Top 10 Law Firms in California in The Fields of Criminal Defense and Immigration Law

Zulu Ali’s Law Firm, a Black-Owned Law Firm, Has Been Listed By Attorney And Practice Magazine as One of The Top 10 Law Firms in California in The Fields of Criminal Defense and Immigration Law

Expertise, honors and prestige are all taken into account when choosing the top 10 firms. The award is a recognition granted to organizations that show the highest level of excellence in their areas of law. Lawyer and Practice Magazine honors the notable contributions of those lawyers and firms whose practice raises the Bar’s expectations. This means that this award will be won by less than 1 percent of lawyers nationally.

The Law Office of Zulu Ali has extended its practice to include groups of individuals at the International Criminal Court in the Hague in the Netherlands and the African Court of Justice in Tanzania, representing people accused of crimes, refugees and persons pursuing civil justice in state and federal courts across the country.

The law firm was founded by its founder and principal attorney, Zulu Ali, a native of Tennessee, former police officer, and U.S. marine veteran, who was influenced by the work and legacy of civil rights lawyers Thurgood Marshall, Avon Williams, Jr., Charles Hamilton Houston, and other civil rights movement activists and leaders. The firm’s mission and ideology is to promote law changes when the law is unjust.

Although the law firm’s role and multicultural make-up exposes it to intense scrutiny, the firm remains motivated by its commitment to uphold and fulfill the legacy of those past leaders and activists who have sacrificed to make society more just.

“I think a lawyer’s goal should be to advocate for reform when there is injustice and question the courts. In our business, despite the huge scrutiny and repercussions that we may face, we put it on the line. But if the laws and courts were not questioned, we would still be in apartheid or servitude to courageous lawyers and activists who are willing to step out of the box. Most lawyers and activists are intimidated and neutralized because they are usually targeted, ridiculed, and subject to reprimand or worse when they challenge the status quo, but it’s necessary given the risks,” adds Senior Attorney Zulu Ali.

Will Adoasi Black-Owned Watch Brand Launches New Line of Modular-Interchangeable Fashion Watches

Will Adoasi the founder of Vitae London watches launches a new line of modular-interchangeable fashion watches on Kickstarter. Richard Branson and Virgin Start-Up backed the company, and Richard was one of the first to buy and wear a London Vitae watch.

The new line, called Elmington, is available in both face sizes of 36 mm and 44 mm. Each size comes in a choice of four facial colors (silver, blue, gun metal gray and black) and each watch can be purchased with interchangeable bands and bezel (rim)–in silver, rose gold and gold range. This means that you can create three different watches from just one watch face to suit whatever you wear.

Like all Vitae London watches, the Elmington line helps kids in sub-Saharan Africa. For example, a Solar Lamp from local charity Pen to Paper Ghana is given to a child for every Elmington watch purchased. Which means the kids don’t have to drive for hours or burn hazardous fuels to study at night.

Will is passionate about making watches combining modern and conventional fashion with social justice. Vitae watches are sleek, compact timepieces that look great while also making a difference in the world, mixing minimalist ideas with trendy modernity.

The watches are named after the South London council estate, where Will grew up. These humble beginnings inspired Will to create a company that was at the heart of social change. His goal is to help all of us ‘live without boundaries’ –whether we were born in the UK, or in Africa, or elsewhere in the world.

Minority Communities for Political Accountability Coalition is Challenging 2020 Candidates to Spend 12% of Their Campaign Contributions on Black-Owned Businesses

The black vote is vital to both local and national level candidates looking to enter office in 2020. As candidates hit campaign paths in order to make their principles known and win over supporters, one group wants to make sure they are also interested in black companies.

A non-partisan group, the Minority Communities for Political Accountability Coalition (McPAC) asks 2020 political candidates to spend a portion of their campaign contributions on black-owned businesses. The board of the alliance is made up of country-wide black experts specializing in wealth creation, prison reform, equality in education, and more. McPAC is pushing politicians to invest 12 percent or more with black companies as an ode to the 12 percent of black people living in the U.S.

Originally, the San Francisco Bay View reported that as part of their initiative, McPAC will track, monitor and display the promises of candidates online.

Dr. Rik Stevenson, author and founding panelist for McPAC, said in an interview with the publication, “Candidates need not wait until they are elected to office and pass legislation to help empower black lives and black communities. Candidates can start now, simply by using black-owned business services with their campaign funds when buying goods and services. It’s a tangible starting point.
At this time, the proposal was not supported by any lawmakers.

STARBUCKS Launches $10 Million Investment to Create Loans For Small Businesses in Chicago

STARBUCKS Launches $10 Million Investment to Create Loans For Small Businesses in Chicago

Coffee giant Starbucks is offering $10 million to four community development agencies in Chicago, a bid to stimulate economic growth and loans in underserved communities for small businesses.

The funds will be distributed to Accion Chicago, CCLF, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), and IFF. The four financial institutions for community development (CDFIs) will use the investment to help fund more than 500 loans to Windy City small businesses.

Community development groups frequently use investor funding to provide support and funding to businesses that may not be able to access capital from mainstream financial institutions such as banks.

“We believe that the pursuit of profit does not conflict with the pursuit of doing good,” Kevin Johnson, CEO of Starbucks, said in a press release. “We know that when the communities we serve thrive, our business performs at its best. This sustained investment will provide access to capital and mentorship to lenders who often face obstacles to increasing their business and creating more jobs in Chicago.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot applauded the commitment of Starbucks to her town. “Chicago’s unique relationship with Starbucks spans over three decades and we are very excited to continue this partnership well into the future, through the 200 new jobs created in the beautiful new Reserve Roastery and through our communities that align with our ambitious South / West INVEST program, as we work together to accelerate innovation and access to opportunities for each of us.

Bank of America will help Starbucks distribute the investment to the four lenders. In early 2020, the CDFIs are expected to begin making loans to small businesses and community groups, but lenders can now apply for loans. Residents of Chicago may apply for loans from Starbucks statements by visiting the respective CDFI websites.
Starbucks joins several large firms that have made investments to help underserved communities in Chicago.

Black Enterprise announced that JPMorgan Chase & Co. is investing $10 million in December 2018 to provide real estate for the growth of Chicago’s black business. Engagement ensures that developers in Chicago can gain access to affordable land in underserved areas on the western and southern sides of Chicago. The nation’s largest bank lends the money to the Chicago Community Loan Fund (CCLF), a non-profit lender which promotes the construction of commercial real estate and helps small businesses secure funds for project financing.

Danielle Mcgee Launches Program To Support Black-Owned Businesses

Black purchasing power is estimated at $1.2 trillion and several entrepreneurs are on a mission to ensure that these dollars circulate within the African American community. Danielle McGee created the Black Business Boom website as a way to connect consumers across the country with Black-owned businesses

“I established Black Business Boom since black-owned companies usually have less access to funding, thereby restricting their ability to spend money on advertising,” said Danielle McGee, founder of Black Business Boom.

Compared to Groupon and Living Social websites, McGee’s network offers coupons for almost 400 small businesses run by Black. Both the website and the app cover a wide range of beauty-to-auto products and services. The platform also provides users with location-based advertising information on events and promotions from Black-owned businesses. Black Business Boom has been created to highlight companies and build a solid customer loyalty base.

“I started Black Business Boom because Black businesses typically have less access to funding, thus limiting their ability to market money,” McGee said in a statement. “Our platform is an affordable way for small business owners to generate revenue while retaining loyal customers.” She also stressed the importance of promoting social movements that help Black-owned businesses by providing people with the tools they need to take actionable steps to accomplish their purpose.

Several digital platforms have been created to support businesses owned by Black. After truck driver Edward Dillard found it difficult to locate African-American restaurants on the road during his coast to coastal shifts— especially in the outskirts of major cities— he launched the Eat Black Owned platform. The website is a nationwide directory of more than 2,000 eateries run by Black people. Depending on their geographical location, users can locate restaurants.
