Kimberly Bryant started Black Girls Code because she believes that it is important to increase the number of women of color in the digital space. By empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology, she believes she can provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040. We believe in her.
The creator of KLT Art by Kendro took time out to create a holiday shopping guide. The list contains about 70 Black-owned businesses to support for the holiday season and beyond. On the list you can find art, clothing, toys, shoes, and more. You are sure to find something for the women, men, and children in your life on their list.
The family over at Blavity definitely did us a solid. They put together a great list of Black-owned businesses to support. The list categories range from items we all know and love (snazzy tees) to Black-owned business gifts we didn’t even realize we could give (television entertainment subscriptions). There’s definitely something for everyone on this list. It’s a great resource when you’re looking to give your loved ones something unique.
The wonderful thing about our creative community is that SOMEONE SOMEWHERE has surely executed an idea that you had in your head, but didn’t have the time to make happen. The family over at Quirky Brown Love put together an impressive gift giving guide to help make the season of buying black easier than ever. We can’t thank them enough.
HAPPY SHOPPING FAMILY!
