Actor, dancer, and activist Nichelle Nichols was one of the first Black actors to play a major role on a television series. Uhura, the character she created and played on Star Trek, was also groundbreaking as the first non-stereotyped Black woman character.
She paved the way for so many to reach for the stars and believe they could be anything they dreamed. 🤎
We celebrate the incredible life she lived and the remarkable legacy she leaves behind. ❤️👏🏿👏🏾
Rest well among the stars. ✨🚀

August is Black Business Month 2022! 
#BlackBusinessMonth is not only an opportunity to honor Black-owned businesses, it’s a time to focus on equity and to ensure we’re all working together to build an economy where everyone can thrive. 
“African American business owners were one of the hardest hit groups at the beginning of the pandemic. But now, this group is making a comeback. Just over 1.2 million African Americans were self-employed in February 2022, compared to slightly under 1.1 million in February 2020. The number of Black small-business owners was 28% higher in the third quarter of 2021 than it was pre-pandemic, compared to 19% for Latino business owners and 5% for white and Asian business owners. One study found that Black owners have accounted for 26% of all websites created for new businesses since the pandemic began, compared to 15% before.”
