Love and Life Inspire Success for Two Black Women Entrepreneurs

(BPT) - Two rising, women entrepreneurs — Jena Holliday and Kalilah Wright — have found their voice and are using it to spread Black joy, solidify Black representation in retail and shine a spotlight on what success looks like. With the help of Target, Holliday and Wright’s stories are being told via the retailer’s Black History Month campaign, celebrating the creators building Black economic vitality and leaving a strong legacy for future generations.

With just a bit of faith, illustrator and author Jena Holliday walked away from her mainstream marketing job to embrace her passion for art. What started as a hobby eventually evolved into a full-time commitment of spreading kindness and hope through her drawings depicting Black women. That commitment blossomed into a blog, aptly named Spoonful of Faith, and has thus become not only a successful business but a cultural beacon.
