Black History Month is an annual celebration of contributions by African Americans and a time for recognizing African American pioneers in U.S. History. Latoya Nicole, the owner of Entrepreneurs Color Too, an adult coloring book company highlighting beautiful black women is celebrating black history and culture through coloring.
Our American culture is rich with African American leaders and trailblazers such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As African Americans and others observe Black History Month, Latoya said she’d like to see us also continue telling the stories of the Black entrepreneur. “I believe in celebrating Black history and excellence all year-round.”
We celebrate their achievements by being creative and coloring to learn more about the many brilliant women of color that helped pave the way in entrepreneurship such as Madame C.J. Walker and Oprah Winfrey. Madame C.J. Walker was a pioneer and the first black female millionaire who created a way to produce and sell hair care products. She was also a philanthropist and activist. Today, women like Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey own it. Black entrepreneurs continue daring to defy the business norms and chart new territory.
Latoya’s coloring book 24 Shades of Business is not only a therapeutic activity, there are also inspirational quotes and crossword puzzles that test your black history and remind you of what it takes to be successful in your career. The illustrations in the Amazon best-seller coloring book show black women at work in various professions, including a CEO, photographer, a yoga instructor, beautician, therapist and blogger. Deemed “the coloring book for the black entrepreneur’s soul,” 24 Shades of Business taps into your creative side while giving you a cathartic experience that takes your mind away from the everyday stress of being a hardworking black woman.
24 Shades of Business is available for purchase on Amazon.
