For almost every platform that supports Black entrepreneurs and businesses, there is a personal story that led the founders on that journey. This is true for Nile, and it’s also true for our partner, BLK+GRN. Following the murder of George Floyd, many consumers are highlighting the importance of buying Black and supporting Black-owned businesses. But even before buying Black became a trending topic, BLK+GRN was leading the way as an all-natural marketplace by Black artisans founded by Dr. Kristian Henderson. The goal of BLK+GRN is to connect Black people with natural lifestyles to high-quality, toxic-free brands. Another goal is to promote overall good health and wellness to the African American community while supporting other black people.
