No comments

You are capable of doing whatever your heart desires and you don’t have to justify your purpose or reason to anyone! Be your best self and live life to the fullest!

Women, in general, are creating lanes for themselves in industries and starting businesses in uncharted territories that were once classified for men only. Black Women, especially, have found they’re true-born talents and are going beyond thought-provoking ideologies of pioneer women who paved the way such as Madame C.J. Walker, Nina Simone, Betty Shabaz, Coretta Scott King, Michelle Obama, Angela Davis, Rosa Parks, and Harriet Tubman to name a few. We’re channeling our inner creativity and when we’re able to layout the blueprint of our thought processes and bring them to life, you better watch out! We are inspired and motivated to break the cycle! It is our desire to create financial stability, to have business ownership, and the freedom to act, speak or think as we want, being a WOMAN!

Therefore, we decided to list some of the most outstanding and influential Black Female Cigar Lounge owners that you should know, who is leaving an imprint and changing the cigar culture. We have a great deal of respect for these ladies and support them in all of their endeavors! We appreciate you, thank you, and admire your tenacity and strength!
