Yet Lehman is hopeful that things are shifting.

Last week, the virtual For the Culture Holiday Market — created by Just Be, a group she cofounded to support Black women entrepreneurs — “received an unprecedented volume of customers,” she says. Although the final tally isn’t in yet, this year’s sales exceeded last year’s total of $45,000.

Amina Galadima is a multihyphenate creator who makes items for the home and body that promote self-care.

The same goes for treating yourself (or someone else) with Galadima’s skin care products. “Taking care of your skin while in a peaceful environment with soothing scents, you’re taking care of yourself.”
