January 17 marks the day celebrated across the United States to respect and honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a leader of the Civil Rights movement and a martyr for an equal society. As we celebrate this holiday, it is important to reflect upon how, as an individual, you can strive to advocate for the Black Lives Matter movement and fight for a more just society every single day. Changing small daily habits or frequent tasks in a way that correlates to supporting those who face racial injustice is something that can be accomplished all year long in order to create a world where all walks of life are seen as equal.
One place to start is by shopping Black-owned fashion and beauty brands. By supporting these businesses as a society, we actively aid in providing opportunities for People of Color to grow and develop in the business world. There are an abundance of beautiful and articulate Black-owned designer brands to choose from — whether you are in need of a swimsuit for an upcoming vacation, new makeup to get glammed up, a dress for date night, a new pair of shoes or this season's trending coats. It is simple to perform small acts of gratitude by fulfilling these needs through Black-owned and founded retailers. Fenty Beauty (shoutout Bad Gal RiRi), Good American, Nubian Skin, Farai London and HUMAN NATION are just a few of the hundreds of Black-owned brands to shop from.
