The world is at a turning point when it comes to the battle for equality. The Black Lives Matter protests are a watershed moment for the US and other predominantly white countries with a significant black population. Unfortunately, racial inequality is still very much present in all spheres of life, including business, with people of color being less likely to become entrepreneurs due to socio-economic circumstances.
Now is the time to turn the tables, and one of the ways to contribute to the revolution is to support all the fabulous black artists in the beauty community. This doesn’t necessarily mean spending money, although donations to the cause are welcome. In the era of social media dominance, rethinking your content consumption can make a change.
