Black Beauty Industry - A Billion Dollar Business So Why So Few Black Women Owners of Beauty Supply Stores?

The Black Beauty Business rakes in billions of dollars each year, but there are only a handful of companies owned by Black Women with a store selling the products that are targeted almost exclusively to our community.

Meet Pam Thompson of My Shade and Texture. She was tired of not seeing people who looked like her as the owners of beauty supply stores that were marketing and selling exclusively to Black women.

Find out more about her store, how she was able to remain successful during the pandemic, and the scare tactics competitors, with a stronghold in the market, tried to use to keep her from opening.

Visit the store's website to learn more about Pam and how you can place an order from anywhere: www.myshadeandtexture.com

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
