Orlando’s eleventh festival honors the past and highlights a bright future for black business

Ad “So all young ladies who know the tall-girl struggle will have an opportunity to find jeans that are trendy and that fits them perfectly, because you know we should’ve able to have the same things others have,” said Tabia Kuntz of Taboo Denim. As people reflected on what Juneteenth means to them, organizers want the next generation to be inspired to dream bigger.

“When we start our own businesses, it’s nothing just for our selfish reasons, but it’s circulating that Black dollar and making sure everyone eats,” Desir said. Rebecca Desir, also an organizer of Black Wall Street Juneteenth Remix, echoed those sentiments.

One business hopes to spread a message and uplift young women who find themselves looking for clothing that fits naturally. “Black-owned business don’t get the shine that other businesses do, so we want to make sure that we keep that dollar circulating around our neighborhood so we can grow our businesses to the same level as other businesses,” said Ronnie Hartfield, organizer of Black Wall Street Juneteenth Remix.

I can be a business owner.’ So this event shows the kids look they’re all kind of options,” Hartfield said.
