‘Juneteenth Shop Black’ Event To Feature Nearly 100 Black-Owned Brands

Memphis-based event planner Cynthia Daniels has organized a virtual shopping hub to elevate and support Black business.

Event planner Cynthia Daniels’ Memphis, Tennessee-based business, like so many around the country, came to a screeching halt when the coronavirus pandemic hit. With no live events happening, she assumed her work would be on hold through the remainder of the year.

That is, until an idea struck. In May, when it became clear that she wouldn’t be able to visit her family in Atlanta for Mother’s Day, Daniels sent a care package with goods from some of her favorite Black-owned businesses ― coffees, teas, spa products. She also decided to share her favorite items on social media.
