Black Out Tuesday

We wanted to provide a shopping list from our beloved staff and affiliates of the companies we love to support. This list comprises brands that are both Dallas based as well as nationwide to celebrate creativity and economic strength across the African Diaspora.  A boosted Black economy is a boosted American economy. Put your dollar on the right side of history. 

  1. Technology

Lens.AI caught our eye (no pun intended) earlier this year with a feature in black enterprise magazine. As strong advocates for big data & artificial intelligence, we absolutely revere founder Mike Bugembe as an authority in the field. The ability to acquire data, analyze it and optimize it to boost companies is something we love to support. You are doing yourself a great disservice if you believe that Lens.AI are solely about robots. In the rare case that this universe might see a takeover… Lens.AI would have the knowledge win the war against the machines.

  • VisioTech –

    This web based tech company was built out of the frustrations it’s founder Tiffany Martin endured when she lost her vision and took on the challenge of returning to the workforce. Seeing the discrepancies and lack of access to technology in order to better aid the disabled community, she was on a mission to develop better systems, hardware and software specifically for accessibility. With the research they are conducting in education alone… It doesn’t take sight in order to have a grand vision.


  1. Fashion

  • Fear of God –

    In the wake of high end fashion lines making a huge racial plunder in marketing, we began searching for threads that resembled our unique styles and culture. Style is not a one size fits all but what caught our eye was the unique detail of layering and intense monochromatic color schemes. Seek and ye shall find… a brand for the stylish believer.


  1. Beauty & Cosmetics

    • Bevel Grooming Products –

      “Signature fade with a beveled blade… That’s a major key.” Nas’ sentiments could not have been more accurate. This grooming line, which focuses on black hair is one of a kind. With customizable product selection through personalized assessments your 1st experience definitely won’t be your last.

    • Black Girl Sunscreen

      Do not get burned with false information! Black people need to protect their skin from UV rays just as much as anyone else. This black owned sunscreen lotion provides the necessary protection and nutrients that will keep you covered as you enjoy your summer outdoors, showing off your melanin richness.

    • Luxe Touch Medical Spa –

      Our staff members take a holistic approach in their health and relaxing visits to the spa are a must when you work as hard as we do. Luxe Touch Medical Spa has an amazing, helpful team of licensed professionals that offers an array of services. A clean environment along with convenience makes for a stress-free experience and a fan favorite.


  1. Entertainment

We are in love with HBO’s The Shop and all the taboo topics executive producer Lebron James likes to zone into. James continues to grow his entertainment empire. With the upcoming release of Space Jam 2, our staff is already on nostalgia overload. This triple threat, as an athlete, activist and now entertainer has set up Springhill as a contender for MVP.

Available for desktops, this one of a kind game for black women empowerment is nothing short of enjoyable excellence. Be warned, this game is super addictive as our staff found out very quickly. Check out the video below and take a swat at those nagging hands trying to invade your personal space.

This publicly traded entertainment conglomerate has recently been “Topping the Charts” in the stock market. We are in no way financial advisors however we could not help but to take notice of this woman owned organization which is one of few within the public trading spaces. Cathy Hughes is a force to be reckoned with.


  1. Physical & Mental Wellness

Fitness does not come easy for everyone but we all know it’s important. Finding a motivational source rooted in perseverance is rare but we’ve found that in Grit Fitness.  Stay healthy in quarantine, get that heart rate up and try out their virtual courses today.

We are serious when it pertains to our mental health. Finding access to resources that cultivate that wellness has become more and more convenient.

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett has made grand plays on and off the field. Featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, the Shower Pill has steadily grown as a portable hygienic alternative for athletes on the go. This is a great addition for your workout bag and great idea for favors for your next event.


  1. Food & Beverage
    • Manna Juice

      Our staff frequents Manna Juice often for their immune booster shots, funky titled smoothies and fresh pressed delicious juices. Their online payment process is simple and their facility is clean. Don’t be a dead BEET… TURNIP and get some juice!

    • Root’s Chicken Shak –

Season 7 Of Bravo TV’s hit culinary show Top Chef introduced a dynamic personality we absolutely love to follow. Chef Tiffany Derry has placed her mark in fine comfort cuisine. Place an order for the duck fat fried chicken wings to go and let us know what you think!

As the largest African- American-owned wine company in the United States, their distinct product has been flying off the shelves. This endearing tell of family connections blended with meticulous detail in select wine makes for a great conversation starter. Lift your spirits with a bottle of Black Girl Magic wine and cheers to the freakin weekend.

  1. Education

We have a heart for the community and that energy and drive is passionately reflected through the organization, Ladies for Art, Culture & Education. This program has integrated a holistic curriculum in several Dallas based elementary schools. With plans of expanding into e-books, events & more, we continue to LACE up our working boots and partner to transform the lives of young ladies.

No one understands adolescence more than an adolescent and Essynce Couture connects with this. Having written three books chronicling 6th, 7th and 8th grade, young entrepreneur Essynce Moore is not only writing her way into history, she’s also doing it in style. Empower young readers to succeed, cultivate their own style and have help along the way when needed.


  1. Home & Lifestyle

During pandemic times, everything is at home, but is your heart? Create your safe space, turn chaos into peace, and make home the place where your heart is with a variety of candles and home decor from SJ Home. After all, it’s not just a house, or office, it’s your home.

  1. Real Estate & Construction

This real estate tycoon brings a whole new meaning to buying the block. Peebles’ sustainable and affirmative strategies have supported the efforts of inclusion through its residential and commercial projects within the community. Not only are they presenting a seat at the table but the house that will protect its cause.

  • E Smith Advisors –

    Hall of Famer running back Emmitt Smith along with business partner Eugene Walker has cemented their position as construction authorities within the Lone Star State. With development rapidly increasing in Dallas, along with prior projects with the Cowboys practice facility in Frisco and the DFW International Airport, E Smith Advisors has laid the foundation to be around for some time.
