Dear fellow nightingale, as someone who values the arts as well as an entrepreneurial spirit, I've compiled this list for you of my favorite local POC (Peopole of Color) artists/entrepreneurs as well as POC friendly spaces. I have crossed path with each one of them. They are as talented as they are hard-working. My hope is that your path to emotional healing may be a holistic one that will get you to the point where you can stop and smell the roses each day. Please check back as this list will continue to grow.
