Buy From A Black Woman Is Filming A Documentary Series

A few months ago I was chosen by Buy From A Black Woman to be part of a documentary series called The Living Examples.  Buy From A Black Woman is an organization I belong to that helps bring awareness to Black Women business owners and the people who support them. The funding for the documentary series was provided by H&M.

To be honest, it was an honor to be selected for the documentary series. In the beginning, I was a bit nervous about the whole process since I had no idea what the finished episode would be like, but I love it! I know Effie would be proud and is beaming down from heaven.

The Process

The episode featuring me and Effie’s Paper was shot in one full day in New York City. We started in Harlem at the home of a good friend and one of our EP VIPs. Next, we stopped in Tribeca for lunch with two of my Goldman Sachs 10kSB sisters, and ended in the EP Brooklyn studio to chat with a few members of my team. It was amazing to watch Nikki and her team in action. I was truly overwhelmed by the love from my friends and team who participated in the documentary.

Each episode features a different Black female entrepreneur across a variety of industries. Part of what makes the documentary series so compelling is that each woman is at a different stage in her entrepreneurial journey. My full episode is available now and I can’t wait for you to watch it – simply click here.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


And if you have a minute, please bookmark the documentary series and go back to watch all of the episodes.  Nikki Porcher and her team have traveled to 20 different cities. Talking to, listening to, and learning what it takes to be a Black Woman Business Owner from folks like me. Each episode focuses on what community support looks like and why it’s important for the stories of Black women business owners to be told.

The stories in the documentary series are powerful, the women incredible and their businesses are ones you should know about.
