A Pop-Up Shop Featuring Innovative Black Women
21 Sundays is a monthly pop-up shop featuring businesses owned by black women. New vendors are showcased every month, giving the LA community a chance to learn more about exceptional products and support local entrepreneurs as they continue to establish their businesses.
The concept of 21 Sundays was inspired by the challenges personally experienced by it's founder, Ashli Haynes, in her entrepreneurial journey to establish her intentional candle business, Star Magic by Ashli. Black women are currently the most educated demographic in the US and the fastest growing group to start their own businesses. Yet despite these facts, black women are the most likely to face rejection when seeking business loans, the least likely to receive capitol from investors, and even when they are lucky enough to find investors, the investment received is minuscule in comparison to their non-black counterparts. The necessary support to create a successful business is rarely extended to black women entrepreneurs, which is often reflected in revenue. 21 Sundays is a movement for change. Here, we create awareness, generate support, and expand community for dynamic brands that are too often overlooked due to racial and gender bias.
Join the movement! Please contact us for more information on how to become a vendor, or if you'd like to attend an upcoming event.
