We want this space to be a place where our community can come together to shop, celebrate, unite and heal through our Afrobeats workouts sessions, Yoga, storytelling and kids activities. We are an African Black Owned brand, but what is also important to us is that we are a Minnesota brand that is promoting unity and celebrating diversity locally and globally.”
