New magazine focuses on black female entrepreneurs
Nicole Norfleet of the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes about Fearless Commerce, a business magazine that focuses on black, female entrepreneurs.
Norfleet writes, “Part of the goal of ‘Fearless Commerce’ is to encourage consumers to support black entrepreneurs financially by frequenting their businesses, Hardy said.
“In its current format, ‘Fearless Commerce’ resembles a glossy coffee-table book. The 65-page first issue features Q&A-style profiles of 24 black woman entrepreneurs, ranging from a stylist to an architect to consultants and strategists.
“‘These women, they are fearless. They went out there. They are bold women. They are unafraid to push the limits,’ Thomas said.
“The idea to start the magazine came about after Thomas and Hardy had lunch early this year and discussed their disappointment in a lack of diversity in business coverage. Thomas said she was disheartened when she had recently flipped through one local publication.”
