FOUNDER OF BLACK OWNED SUPPLEMENT COMPANY BREAKS NEW GROUND BY RESPONDING TO THE UNIQUE HEALTH NEEDS OF BLACK PEOPLE WORLDWIDE

Houston, TX -- Ernesto Sigmon, founder and CEO of Black Edged, LLC, has launched an entirely new approach to the nutritional health supplement and wellness space. With his launch, Black Edged becomes the first of its kind anywhere in the world: a 100% Black owned supplement company that manufactures non-GMO products that are scientifically formulated to meet the health and lifestyle needs of Black people around the world.

The company's website at www.blackedged.com literally welcomes its visitors "to the Edge" and what it expects to be an entirely new and exciting chapter in health and wellness. "It is well known that Black people from all socioeconomic classes suffer disproportionately from major chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, arthritis, asthma and autism," says Sigmon.

Recognizing the correlation between Vitamin D deficiency and chronic disease in Black people specifically; was the tipping point for Black Edged.
"After educating ourselves on this silent epidemic, we began to scratch our heads and ask why no one in the health and wellness space was doing anything to address this issue head on?" says Sigmon.

Featured On The Today Show LaChanze And Daughter Celia Make History As 1st Mom As Well As Daughter Starring On Broadway At The Same Time
By Kamau Austin, Publisher of Scoop Publications

Are you making history in a positive way? Well you keep caring and we'll keep sharing.
3-Time Emmy Award
Winning Producer
Michele Williams

Today I got good news a touching historic story we shared on social media (from an article on BET), landed yesterday on the "Today Show." It was seen on my Facebook page and our Black Men Truly Loving Black Women group.

Award winning actress LaChanze stars as the Ghost of Christmas Present in "A Christmas Carol," while her daughter Celia Rose Gooding, makes her Broadway debut starring as "Frankie in Jagged Little Pill."

This is historic because this is the 1st time a Black mom and daughter have starred on Broadway at the same time.  A close personal contact of mine Michele Williams, who is also a 3-Time Emmy Award Winning Producer, at the prestigious NBC Today Show, saw our post about this historic mom and daughter and had it featured on the network's program.  Both are on Broadway in lead roles in separate shows.

Michele then pitched this historic occurrence and got it on the Today Show.  I want to thank Michele Williams for covering this uplifting story during the holiday season.

 Also kudos to this mom and daughter duo both killing it in separate Broadway shows.  The Today Show Interview revealed the irony of how mother LaChanze didn't want her daughter to pursue a career in theatre.

She had mixed feelings about her daughter pursuing an acting career on Broadway because it is very tough industry.  However, her daughter obviously has acting chops too.

Some Influential Black Social Media Thought Leaders Are Espousing Voting Apathy Because Reparations Isn't Taken Seriously By Either Party.
However Is This A Good Strategy?
Dem Debate 12-19

By Kamau Austin, Publisher Scoop Publications

There has always been demoralized and apathetic black people who have felt voting, especially within the US 2-party system -- doesn't matter.  However, in the past these tended to be people who are economically and socially marginalized.

However more recently we have seen social media thought leaders, usually in a higher income and asset bracket - state this as well.  They have advocated for reparations as the litmus test of whether Blacks should vote in the US.  However it is becoming pretty apparent that both major parties are sidelining the reparations issue.

Did you notice the reparations question posed to former Vice President Joe Biden, in the last Democratic Presidential debate of 12/20/2019 - lasted like 5 seconds? Wow Biden redirected that question fast!

That's possibly the fastest redirect in US debate history?  LOL!  But Seriously, a Facebook Friend asked me "What does that tell you?" Hhhhhm good question. It tells me...

Be Warned: The SHADOW... It's Closer Than You Think
By JV Howard

The moment we show up in the universe we are on a timeline with events, milestones, anniversaries , discovery, challenges, etc, which may occur immediately, or sooner than later, with some forthcoming. Yet, as the cliche goes; time flies and what seemed distance all of a sudden - to our amazement - appear “closer than we think.”

The monticule before us is the dogged pursuit to be a paragon of excellence during the major or minor paradigm shift we experience during our journey. As we traverse the timeline of life events your contribution to humanity, whether cardinal or spiritual, will be summarized during the reading of your eulogy not your curriculum vitae.

How it's read then depends on your body of work now. Full disclosure: Get busy! The end games for humanity, the planet, and our “own mortality” is on the menu of the penumbra. Too engrossed in the vicissitudes of life we have become oblivious to the Shadow who - in plain site - sits at the door with ghastly connotations.

Michelle Timberlake, founder of Marjorie's Beef Jerky
Nationwide -- Michelle Timberlake, founder of Marjorie's Beef Jerky, continues to make history as founder of the only Black woman-owned company in the country that manufactures, distributes and sells it's own brand of beef jerky. Recently, the company drew crowds of people during their appearance at the IGES Trade Show in Tennessee, and even closed some new distribution deals and purchase orders.

Michelle says that she explains to gift store owners/buyers as well as distributors, that her beef jerky products are like no other beef jerky products on the market. "Our beef jerkey is premium meat, high in quality, high in protein, with no MSG or preservatives outside of the soy sauce. Even more, it's only 150 calories per bag," she told them.

Michelle says she created quite an uproar at that trade show in particular. After encouraging those who don't even like beef jerky to try her products, she says that everyone of them all became new customers. (Article continues below)
