“Growing up, I was made to feel like I was not beautiful because of my  dark skin color and tightly coiled hair. I was often picked on by my  peers. I remember crying endlessly as I was being called names like  “black”, “African booty scratcher”, or “nappy head”.  The bullying did  not just stop at words but it became physical. Girls would take turns  pulling on my hair. I even remember one guy spitting on my hair. The  constant teasing and bullying damaged my self-esteem”. – Eunice Cofie-Obeng

On this episode of Black Wall Street Today, Blair Durham chats it up with two business women that blew her mind. Enjoy fashion designer Abena Aforo  and Eunice Cofie-Obeng from who is making great strides in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical  industries. She is the President and Chief Cosmetic Chemist of Nuekie –  an innovative health and beauty company for people of color.
