Nationwide — Beauty Supply Institute, a training and consulting organization founded in 2007 by former business & economics professor and 3-time store owner Devin Robinson, began with offices and rented training rooms. Beauty Supply Institute has opened 87 beauty supply stores across America, Canada and the Caribbean. However, in November 2016, the organization expanded into hands-on training by moving its headquarters into a 5,000 square foot facility that now houses its headquarters, training rooms, consulting rooms and a fully functioning beauty supply store.

The Black App News

The first and only African-American so far to hold a patent for a natural hair care product is Detroit native Gwen Jimmere. She wanted to create a solution for black women that would reduce the amount of time they spent washing and conditioning their hair. Not only that, she wanted it to contain natural ingredients. While she experimented with products at home, two life-changing events were her inspiration to become an entrepreneur.

This means so much to me!!! Going from never seeing anyone who looks like me on the deck for almost my whole swimming career, to almost being kicked out of swim meets, to being bullied by white swimmers and their parents for being fast, making me feel like I don't belong there, and so so so many other obstacles! And now an Olympic champion!!! I'm in tears now!!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🏊🏾🏊🏾🏊🏾 #blackgirlmagic #wedoswim #olympicchampion #olympicgold #olympicgames2016 #simonemanuel #1stafricanamerican

And, when you’re knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can’t or shouldn’t go on.".#smartwoman #everyvotecounts #historyinthemaking #excited #letsgo #proud #maythebestwomanwin #bigeffingdeal #neverimagined #1stafricanamerican #nowthis #sisepuede

How To Get Away With Murder

5 Burning Questions for Season 2
#HowToGetAwayWithMurder
3. Will Connor step up to the plate?
Last season we watched Connor navigate his on-again, off-again, using him vs. in love with him relationship with Oliver. What started out as simply a means to get information ended up with Connor having the first committed relationship of his life. After he and Oliver were tested for STDs, the shocking revelation was that playboy Connor got a clean bill of health, whereas Oliver apparently picked up H.I.V. from one of his few partners. Now the question is, will Connor stick around?

Granted, having H.I.V. is no longer the immediate death sentence it once was back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, and people are less afraid to shake hands with or be near an H.I.V. infected person. On the other hand, as much as society has progressed, there is still a stigma associated with the disease. How is Connor going to treat Oliver as a person because of this revelation? We are hoping they maintain a relationship even if they aren’t destined to be the loves of each other’s lives. We don’t want to see a break-up be solely caused by H.I.V. They have the opportunity for some groundbreaking network TV here, and we are hoping they don’t blow it.

How To Get Away With Murder

The tweets didn't stop there, with the soap actress tweeting directly at certain users to apologize for her comments, writing "Im a d---" and "I was a dummy." The actress issued a lengthy apology at one point in the night, writing: "I apologize for my earlier tweets and now realize I need to check my own privilege. My intention was not to take this historic and important moment from Viola Davis or other women of color but I realize that my intention doesn't matter here because that is what I ended up doing. I learned a lot tonight and I admit that there are still some things I don't understand but I am trying to and will let this be a learning experience for me." #ViolaDavis#Congrats#
