Meet some previous grantees

Magic City Barber Shop

In the heart of Alabama's historic Civil Rights District, Magic City Barber Shop prides itself on its rich history of Black entrepreneurship and continued legacy of uplifting civil rights activists. Opened in 1930 and family-owned and operated since 1956, the Birmingham shop is now run by second-generation owner Percy Hornbuckle.

Mah Melanin

Mah Melanin is all about celebrating Black culture through uplifting imagery. Inspired by the lack of diverse decor available during the holidays, founder Ardean Miller-Marbley created gift wrap featuring a Black Santa. Since then, the Louisiana business has expanded to include t-shirts, home goods, and other items for year-round representation.

Majestic D'Vah

Georgia's Majestic D'Vah is dedicated to helping people find and showcase their inner D'Vah through beauty and wellness products, as well as clothing featuring their signature affirmations. Inspired by founder Mitzie Pattman's mother, Majestic D'Vah proves that self-care isn't just a trendy buzzword: it's a state of mind.
