It was suggested that I attend the Black Owned: Black History Month Pop Up Market by Justice Achampong – Founder of Ananse Clothing, and I took him up on his offer. The event was put on to support and promote black owned businesses in the city.
Here’s a just a few of the vendors and business owners I was able to connect with.

I am a fan of Edible Bliss founder and chef, Amanda Hamer, and I ran up to her and gave her a warm hug as soon as I saw her at the event.
She had a bunch of delish treats on her table, but her pecan tart (pictured) spoke to me. The verdict: SCRUMPTIOUS! Loved the flakiness of the crust, but the kiss of rum in this dessert was next level yumminess. Thanks, Amanda!

12 Months of Melanin
Photographer Setti Kidane, photographed an array of black women to create artistic black and white calendars. What she came up with is a true work of art.
Kinda kicking myself for not picking one up.
